Compare with other cars in the Small MPV category

The body shell is very strong and provided a stable passenger cell for all of the occupants, the car achieving the coveted five star rating. The restraint systems include single stage tethered airbags for the driver and passenger, front safety belts with pre-tensioners and load limiters and seat-mounted side airbags. The child protection offered by the car was very good. Side impact protection was very impressive. The score in the pedestrian test was the joint best (with Citroen's C4) that Euro NCAP has seen for cars tested to the latest protocols.
