COMMENTS

- Frontal impact: The protection offered to the driver and passenger head and neck was good. Driver chest received adequate protection and passenger’s chest good protection from the restraint systems. Driver and Passengers knees showed good protection. Driver and Passenger’s tibia showed good and adequate protection. Footwell area is stable and showed insignificant deformation. Feet protection is good. The bodyshell was rated as stable. Side impact: The side thorax head airbag offered good protection to the adult in head, abdomen and pelvis, while adequate protection in the chest. Side Pole impact: The side thorax-head airbags helped to offer good protection to the head, abdomen and pelvis while it offered adequate protection to the chest. ESC: The ESC was tested and its performance met the regulatory requirements of Latin NCAP. The car offers 2 frontal SBR. All of the above explain the 5 stars for adult occupant protection. As the VW Polo is the same car as the Virtus from the B-pillar to the front, the frontal and side pole impact assessment were carried over the Polo test, however as the Virtus has a longer wheelbase the side impact was performed again.
