ADULT OCCUPANT 

The protection offered to the driver and passenger’s head and neck was good. Driver’s chest showed marginal protection while passenger’s chest showed good protection.

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 and passenger. Passenger pretensioner failed to work properly during the test. 

CHILD OCCUPANT 

The child seat for the 3 year old was installed fordward facing with ISOFIX and top tether and was able to prevent excessive forward movement during the impact while it offered good protection for the head and fair protection to the chest. The 18 month old Child Restraint System (CRS) was installed with ISOFIX and top tether forward facing which explains the loss of head points, it showed poor protection for the head and chest. The recommended CRSs did not show incompatibility. The vehicle offers standard ISOFIX and top tether anchorages in the two outboard rear seats and does not offer 3 point belts in all seating positions.
