The passenger compartment remained stable during the front impact test. The front seat occupants were sufficiently well restrained by the double seatbelt pretensioners that their knees did not contact the facia. Opel showed that the knees and femurs of occupants of different sizes and those sat in different seating positions would also be well protected. The Insignia scored maximum points in the side impact and pole tests. In the pedestrian tests, the bumper scored maximum points for protection of pedestrians' legs. However, the bonnet was rated as predominantly poor for the protection it offered the head of a struck adult.
