The car tested was fitted with a 1.0-litre engine, replacing the 1.2-litre Corsa model evaluated by Euro NCAP and reported in February 1997. As before, the passenger hit his head on the facia which, in the previous test, had pointed to a risk of serious injury or death. This time the head did not strike as hard but it remained a concern. Unlike the first test, a driver's head contact also took place. As previously found with GM cars, the labelling on child restraints could be misinterpreted.
