COMMENTS

In the frontal impact the driver and passenger heads were both well protected by the restraint system. There were structures in the area of the fascia that could expose the occupants to risk if impacted by knees and the protection to the lower legs was marginal. During the impact, the boot lid opened posing the risk of ejection to the occupants. According to information from the manufacturer most of the Merivas sold in SA are not equipped with airbags. LatinNCAP selected this vehicle not based in a market reference but to compare it to the European Meriva tested by EuroNCAP.
