Adult occupant

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings for the passenger indicated good protecction of all body areas. There were no structures in the facia which might present a hazard to the knees or femurs, and protection of this body area was rated as good for both driver and front passenger. In the side impact all body regions were well protected but, in the pole impact, dummy readings of rib compression indicated marginal chest protection. The front seat and head restraints provided good protection against whiplash injuries in a rear-end collision.

Child occupant

The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position, and clear information was provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag so the system was rewarded. Permanently attached labels on the sun visor clearly warn of the dangers of using a rearward facing child seat in that position without first disabling the airbag.


Most of the areas likely to be struck by an adult pedestrian's head offered poor protection but for small adults and children protection was mostly good. The protection offered to the hip and pelvic areas was poor in all areas tested. The bumper offered predominantly good protection to pedestrians' legs but some areas were marginal or poor.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is standard and met Euro NCAP's requirements. Speed limitation devices are only availble as an option. There is a seatbelt reminder system for the driver, passenger and rear seats, all of which met Euro NCAP's requirements.
