Marginal

Pedestrian Summary

Adult & child head impacts: 11.99 points
Upper leg impacts: [not applicable]
Lower leg impacts: 2.28 points

This vehicle scored 14.27 out of 30 points (Marginal). The bumper provided mixed protection to pedestrians’ legs with good protection in some areas and poor or marginal protection in others. Similarly, in
those areas likely to be struck by the head of a child or that of an adult, protection was mostly poor or marginal but was good in some areas. Assessment of the front edge of the bonnet was not appropriate owing to the shape and height of the vehicle. (Tested by Euro NCAP v7 Heavy Vehicles)
