COMMENTS

In the frontal impact the head and neck were well protected. The driver’s chest showed weak protection (according to 2016 protocol requirements) from the restraint systems. The passenger head was well protected. There were hazardous structures in the area of the facia that could be impacted by the driver and front passenger knees. The footwell showed rupture after the impact. The vehicle cell was rated as stable during the frontal impact. The vehicle has Seat Belt Reminder (SBR) that meet Latin NCAP requirements for the Driver position only. The car has seatbelt pretensioner only in driver side. In the side impact the head and pelvis had adequate protection and the abdomen marginal protection and chest had poor protection directly in the dummy readings which explains the result of zero stars, the car does not have side airbags, it has side impact structural reinforcements in the doors but no pelvis energy absorption elements in the door or inner door panel. The car showed a high penetration of the movable barrier that caused a high displacement of the B-pillar and passenger seat which questions the potential protection capacity of the car in a side impact even when equipped with side airbags. The car is not equipped with ESC as standard. Side pole impact test was not performed, the car does not offer side head protection airbags as standard.
