The vehicle scored 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test and a further two points in the optional pole 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.

Dual front airbags, side airbags and head-protecting side curtains are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats.

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.

Frontal Offset Crash Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Frontal Offset* 12.61 pts (out of 16)
Head/Neck 3 pts
Chest 3.88 pts
Upper Legs 2.58 pts
Lower Legs 3.16 pts

The passenger compartment held its shape well in the offset crash test. The accelerator pedal moved rearwards by 60mm and upwards 16mm. The steering wheel hub moved 25mm forward, 46mm downward and 6mm sideways. The front ("A") pillar moved 21mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash the driver’s door could be opened with high manual effort.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver but the head twisted, increasing the risk of neck injury. Steering column components were a potential source of injury for the driver's right knee. The passenger's head was cushioned by the airbag. The fascia on each side of the glove box was a potential source of knee injury.
