The passenger compartment held its shape well in the frontal offset test. There was a slight risk of serious head and chest injury for the driver. All passenger injury values were good. The clutch pedal moved rearwards by 16mm and downwards 21mm. All doors remained closed during the crash.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver but it bottomed out and so a score deduction was applied. The passenger’s head was cushioned by the airbag. There were no knee hazards.
