Dual front airbags and antilock brakes (ABS) with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) are standard. Electronic stability control (ESC) is not available. No advanced seat belt reminders are fitted. Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash.

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

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 X240. 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.
