In the side impact test, forces were transmitted to parts of the dummy which are not representative of a human body, reducing the load on the ribs. Accordingly the maximum penalty of 2 points was applied. This resulted in a chest rating of 'Marginal'. Loads on the abdomen also indicated marginal protection.

The vehicle was eligible for a side pole test because it has side curtain airbags. The vehicle scored the maximum 2 points for head protection in this test.
