The passenger cell remained stable during the frontal impact. Structures in the dashboard presented a risk of injury to the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. In the side impact test the dummy's head contacted the rubber window trim on the cant rail, leading to a high deceleration. However, the data recorded by the dummy suggested an adequate level of head protection. A side impact airbag to protect the chest and the head is available as an option but was not fitted to the test vehicle. In the pedestrian tests, the bumper scored maximum points for the protection offered to pedestrians' legs but the front edge of the bonnet scored no points and those areas which might be struck by pedestrians' heads were predominantly rated as poor.
