Adult occupant tests

  • Frontal impact test (at 64kmph)
    The driver's and passenger's head and neck protection were deemed good. However, the driver's chest had marginal protection, while the passenger's chest received a rating of good. Both the driver's and passenger's knees offered marginal protection, potentially exposing them to hazardous structures behind the fascia. The protection for the driver's tibias was rated as adequate, while the passenger's tibias received ratings of good and adequate. The footwell area and bodyshell were both assessed as unstable, with the bodyshell lacking the capability to withstand additional loads.

  • Side impact test (at 50kmph)
    The head, pelvis, and abdomen exhibited good protection, whereas the chest demonstrated adequate protection.

  • Side pole impact test (at 29kmph)
    Standard curtain airbags meet fitment requirements, providing good protection to the head and pelvis, marginal protection to the chest, and adequate protection to the abdomen.

  • Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
    ESC is standard, and its performance in the test met Global NCAP's latest requirements.

  • Seat belt reminder (SBR)
    SBR is mandatory for all seating positions but is only present in the front seats.
