Safety equipment, as tested, not available on all variants.

A pretensioner is fitted to the driver seat belt to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A two point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat of some variants. This provides inferior protection compared with a three point seat belt, as fitted to the GXR variant.

Frontal Offset Crash Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Frontal Offset* 9.29 pts (out of 16)
Head/Neck 3 pts
Chest 2.18 pts
Upper Legs 1.75 pts
Lower Legs 2.36 pts

The passenger compartment held its shape reasonably well in the offset crash test. The brake pedal moved rearwards by 136mm and upwards 62mm. The steering wheel hub moved 64mm rearward, 31mm upward and 10mm sideways. The front ("A") pillar moved 16mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash the driver’s door could be opened with high manual effort.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver but the head twisted, increasing the risk of neck injury. Steering column and dash components were a potential source of injury for the driver's knees. The passenger's head was cushioned by the airbag. The centre console was a potential source of injury for the passenger's right knee.
