Compare with other cars in the Super Mini category

This is a strong small car with an all-round performance that protects the adult occupants. The structure was stable and the driver's door could still be opened after the frontal impact. The 3 year-old's child restraint used was a vehicle specific ISOFIX type that connected to mounting points within the rear seat, but it failed to contain the child's head in both front and side impact.
