The Omega is one of the older designs of car in this group and, unlike others here, the car does not have passenger or side-impact airbags fitted as standard - they are options. The car merited three stars but this rose to four when side airbags were fitted. And although the car passes side-impact legislation taking effect from October without them, the airbags reduced chest injury risks for the driver. The car's front-impact performance was reasonable although the driver's feet and ankles risked injury. Pedestrian protection was better than for some cars here, although parts of the bonnet provided poor cushioning.
