The passenger compartment held its shape reasonably well in the offset crash test. However, the front part of the driver's floor was pushed rearwards 170mm and the brake pedal moved rearwards by 273mm and upwards 136mm, relative to the driver's seat. The dash moved 72mm towards the driver. The steering wheel hub moved rearwards 79mm, downwards 39mm and sideways 6mm, relative to the driver's seat. The front ("A") pillar moved 91mm rearwards. The roof buckled upwards above the driver and the width of the driver's doorway shortened by 81mm. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash all doors could be opened with normal effort.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver. The head rolled to the side but contact was stable. During rebound the driver’s head came partially out of the window. Steering column components and a metal plate behind the fascia were potential sources of injury for the driver's knees. The passenger's head was cushioned by the airbag.
