Compare with other cars in the Super Mini category

The Micra suffered a modest amount of deformation and intrusion to its body during the frontal impact and, despite the airbag, the driver hit his head and chest on the steering wheel. This supermini has ISOFIX mountings installed on its outer rear seats and both restraints used them. The three-year-old’s did poorly in the front and side impacts, however. The windscreen gave adult pedestrians limited protection while the front of the bonnet offered a reasonable degree of protection for children’s heads.
