The Vauxhall Corsa was awarded two stars for protection in frontal and side impact. The car might have been awarded three stars if the passenger head had not struck the top of the facia. The new frontal impact criteria were all met, with the exception of the passenger head protection and the rearward and upward movement of the steering wheel. In frontal impact, the major problems related to intrusion. However, the passenger compartment retained its stability. Protection from the left knee-impact area was good but on the right there was scope for improvement. Protection in the footwell could also be improved. There were no major deficiencies in side-impact protection but general improvement would be desirable.
