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, high vehicles like the Carnival 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.
