The side impact test normally used by ANCAP simulates a small car striking the driver's door of the test vehicle. Experience shows that large vehicles like the Triton can be expected to perform well in this test. ANCAP has adopted a policy of awarding these types of vehicles a default score of 16 points (out of 16).

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.
