The Pinin Pajero's cabin became unstable in the frontal impact. The screen pillar on the driver's side was pushed backwards and the B-pillar twisted. Impact forces fed through to the passenger's chest were high, increasing his chances of injury, while the driver risked leg and feet injuries. Protection in the side impact was good, though. The younger child risked chest and neck injuries in the frontal impact but the child restraints otherwise worked reasonably. But safeguards for pedestrians were dreadful.
