The forfour achieved a four star adult occupant protection rating. This came after Euro NCAP allowed a re-run of the side test following improvements to the carís door structure and a latch release problem on the rear door. The forfourís body provided a stable passenger safety cell for all occupants. Protection for child occupants was poor, however, while the car gained only 7 points out of a possible 36 for pedestrian protection.
