The driver’s chest showed adequate protection and the passenger’s chest showed good protection. The driver’s knees showed marginal protection, while the passenger’s knees showed good protection.
Protection for the head, abdomen and pelvis was rated as good, while chest protection was adequate in the side impact test. The child seat for the 3-year-old child was capable of preventing head exposure and offered good protection.
The test car was equipped with dual front airbags, seat belt pretensioners, load limiters and seat belt reminder (SBR).
