COMMENTS

In the frontal impact the head and neck of driver and passenger were well protected. The driver’s chest showed weak protection (according to 2016 requirements) from the restraint systems. There were hazardous structures in the area of the facia that could be impacted by the driver and front passenger’s knees. The vehicle cell was rated as stable during the frontal impact. The vehicles has SBR (Seat Belt Reminder) that meet Latin NCAP requirements for the Driver position. The car has seatbelt pretensioners. In the side impact the head and pelvis had adequate protectionand, abdomen had weak protection and chest had poor protection which explains the result limited to one star, the car does not have side airbags however it has side impact structural reinforcements in the doors and inner door panel, this explains the low penetration and shows that the car is developed and planned to offer better side protection. The car is not equipped with ESC as standard. Side pole impact test was not performed, the models does not offer side head protection airbags as standard.
