Compare with other cars in the Super Mini category

The Modus made test history as the first supermini sized car to gain a full five-star safety rating. It achieved this after Euro NCAP allowed a re-run of the frontal test following improvements to the driver's airbag. The car's body proved to be extremely strong, providing good protection for adults: the Modus lost only two points in the frontal impact tests. Its restraint systems include dual stage airbags and front belts with double pre-tensioners and load limiters. The rear outer belts have pre-tensioners and load limiters too. The protection given to children was good but the car did little to safeguard pedestrians.
