Comments

Adult occupant
The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Both dummies recorded similar levels of protection, although no airbag was fitted on the passenger side. Dummy readings showed good protection of the knees and femurs of both front seat passengers but structures in the dashboard were thought to pose a risk to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. In the side barrier test, the Trafic scored maximum points. No pole impact was performed as the Trafic is not equipped with a head protection device. A geometric assessment of the front and rear seats revealed poor protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.

Child occupant
Based on dummy readings in the dynamic tests, the Trafic scored maximum points for its protection of the 3 year infant. In the frontal test, forward movement of the 3 year dummy was not excessive and, in the side impact, both dummies were properly contained within the protective shells of their restraints, minimising the likelihood of head contact with parts of the vehicle interior. The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. However, the airbag switch labelling and dashboard indicator do not provide clear, unambiguous information to the driver about the status of the airbag, and the system was not rewarded.

Pedestrian
The bumper provided poor protection to pedestrians' legs in all areas tested, and scored no points. Assessment of the front edge of the bonnet was not appropriate owing to the shape and height of the vehicle. In those areas likely to be struck by the head of a child or that of an adult, the vehicle provided predominantly poor or marginal protection with only a few areas that were good.

Safety assist
The Trafic does not have electronic stability control fitted as standard to sufficient vehicles to meet Euro NCAP's requirements, so no assessment was performed. A seatbelt reminder is standard equipment for the driver and met Euro NCAP's requirements. A speed limitation device is available but did not meet Euro NCAP's fitment requirements.
