The steering wheel moved forward during the impact to provide greater protection for the driver. The driver dummy scored maximum points in the test but the car lost points because of some stiff structures in the dashboard which might affect the knees or femurs of larger or smaller occupants. In side impact and the pole test the car scored maximum points based on dummy results, however in the side impact the head curtain airbag was prevented from deploying fully by the child restraint system in the rear seat. The leading edge of the bonnet scored no points for the protection it offered to pedestrians' legs and the bonnet was predominantly rated as poor for the protection of adult's heads. However, the protection offered by the bumper was predominantly rated 'fair'.
