Comments

Adult occupant
When the car was inspected after the frontal impact test, it was found that the floor panel had torn away from the base of the A pillar and numerous spot welds had released between the floor and sill. The main body of the sill was found to be bent inwards. The passenger compartment was judged to be unstable and the car was penalised. Similarly, the driver's footwell was found to have ruptured and was unstable and a further penalty was applied. Protection of the driver was predominantly marginal. In the side barrier test, protection of the chest was adequate and that of other body regions was good. However, in the more severe side pole impact, dummy readings of rib compression indicated weak protection of the chest. The seat and head restraint offered marginal protection against whiplash injury in the event of a rear-end collision.

Child occupant
Based on dummy readings in the dynamic tests, the Evalia scored maximum points for its protection of both the 3 year and 18 month infants. Forward movement of the 3 year dummy, sat in a forward-facing restraint, was not excessive. In the side impact, both dummies were properly contained by their restraints, minimising the risk of dangerous head contact with parts of the car interior. The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing restraint to be used in that seating position. However, labelling was not clear and the system was not rewarded. The group 2/3 universal restraint failed the installation check in the rear centre seat but, otherwise, all restraint types could be correctly installed in those seating positions designed to take them.

Pedestrian
The bumper offered good protection to pedestrians' legs in most areas tested. The front edge of the bonnet also provided mostly good protection to the pelvis area. The protection provided by the bonnet in those areas likely to be struck by a pedestrian's head was predominantly adequate or marginal.

Safety assist
The Evalia has electronic stability control as standard equipment and also has a seatbelt reminder for the front seats. A driver-set speed limitation device is available but failed Euro NCAP's requirements as it gives only a visual warning to the driver when the set speed is exceeded.
