The S40 has a very strong and stable passenger safety cage. It achieved five stars after Euro NCAP allowed a pole impact test, following modification to the door pillar trim fixings. In the first test, the curtain airbag interacted with the trim as it deployed. The restraint systems and air bags worked well. Side impact protection was very impressive, while child protection proved to be good. Pedestrian protection was fairly good.
