In the frontal impact the double pre-tensioner on the driver's seatbelt restrained the dummy so that the knees didn't contact the dashboard. The driver's head bottomed-out the airbag onto the steering wheel though head protection was still rated as 'adequate'. The passenger dummy scored maximum points in the frontal impact. In the pedestrian tests the protection offered by the bonnet to the head of a child and the protection offered by the bumper to pedestrians' legs were predominantly rated 'fair'. The leading edge of the bonnet scored no points however.
