Upper leg impacts: 5.46 points

Lower leg impacts: 5.57 points

AEB (VRU): 4.53 points

This vehicle scored 33.00 out of 42 points. The Stinger has an ‘active’ bonnet. Sensors detect when a pedestrian has been struck and the bonnet lifts to provide greater clearance to hard structures within the engine compartment. The Stinger was tested with the bonnet in the raised position with results showing mostly good or adequate results, with poor results recorded at the stiff windscreen pillars and base of the windscreen. The AEB system performed well in tests of its
pedestrian detection, with collisions avoided or mitigated in almost all test scenarios.
