Detailed improvements to side impact and driver knee protection were introduced from May 1997. In frontal impact the driver's head protection would have been judged as good on the basis of the instrumentation, but was down-rated because head contact on the airbag was unstable. Neck protection was good, however, and the restraint system was effective in keeping the driver's chest away from the steering wheel. In side impact, High-impact forces from the Laguna's side were measured by the dummy's ribs, resulting in protection to the chest being assessed as poor. Head and pelvis protection for the driver were judged as good, while protection for his abdomen was assessed as 'adequate'.
