The passenger compartment remained stable in the impact. Compression of the driver's chest led to a marginal rating for protection of that body area. Structures in the dashboard presented a risk of injury to the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger dummy. In the side impact test, the rear sliding door on the impacted driver's side was not fully latched after the side impact and the car was penalised one point as a result. Based on dummy readings alone, the Caddy Life would have scored maximum points. No pole test was performed as a curtain airbag is not standard equipment. In the pedestrian tests neither the bumper nor the front edge of the bonnet scored any points for the protection they offered to pedestrians' legs. However, the protection which the bonnet would offer an adult's head was rated as mostly fair.
