The vehicle was awarded a default score of 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test.


Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

A driver airbag is standard. Antilock brakes (ABS) with electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) are also standard. A front passenger airbag, passenger seat belt pretensioner, side airbags with head-protection and electronic stability control (ESC) are optional. The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt. A pretensioners is fitted to the driver seat belt to reduce slack in the event of a crash.

A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre front seat. This provides better protection than a two point (lap) seat belt.

Frontal Offset Crash Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Frontal Offset* 6.53 pts (out of 16)
Head/Neck 4 pts
Chest 0.53 pts
Upper Legs 2 pts
Lower Legs 0 pts

The passenger compartment lost structural integrity in the footwell area. The clutch pedal moved rearwards by 192mm and upwards 79mm. The steering wheel hub moved 62mm rearward, 54mm upward and 8mm sideways. The front ("A") pillar moved 134mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash tools were required to fully open the driver’s door. Battery acid leaked onto the ground. This is a concern because the batteries are located in the passenger compartment, under the driver's seat. A small fire ignited behind the radiator due to an electrical short.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was stable. Steering column components were a potential source of injury for the driver's knees. A metal bracket behind the fascia was a hazard to passenger knees.

The side impact test normally used by ANCAP simulates a small car striking the driver's door of the vehicle under test. It is based on a regulation test but the regulation does not apply to vehicles with a high seat height like the Transit. Experience shows that such vehicles can be expected to perform well in this test so ANCAP has decided to award full score for these vehicles instead of conducting a crash test.
