The Kangoo's cabin became unstable in the frontal impact. Although the restraint systems and airbags worked well, the driver risked chest injuries because of damage to the vehicle. Side impact protection was affected too, by the distance that the driver's door pillar was pushed in. The 18 month old child used a seat with two-point ISOFIX mountings that provided good protection; but impact forces on the three year old's chest in the frontal impact were a little high. Pedestrian protection was poor.
