ADULT OCCUPANT

The protection offered to the driver and passenger’s head and neck was good. Driver’s chest showed weak protection while passenger’s chest showed marginal protection. Driver and passenger’s knees showed marginal protection as they could impact with dangerous structures behind the dashboard supported by the tranfascia tube. The bodyshell was rated as unstable and it was not capable of withstanding further loadings. Footwell area was rated as unstable. The car offers standard Seat Belt Reminder (SBR) for driver.

CHILD OCCUPANT

The manufacturer declined to recommend Child Restraint Systems (CRS) for the test so the dynamic points were rated as zero. The CRS for the 3 year old was installed forward facing with adult seatbelt and was not able to prevent excessive forward movement during the impact and the head of the dummy contacted the seat. The 18 month old CRS was installed with adult seatbelt rearward facing which offered good protection to the child dummy. The recommended CRSs did not show incompatibility. The vehicle does not offer 3 points in all seating position. The car does not offer ISOFIX connectors.
