Earned Three Stars Overall. Adult occupant: In the frontal impact the driver head was well protected by the restrain system. The adult passenger head protection was weak due to the high decelerations, and the neck and chest protection was marginal. There were hazardous structures in the area of the facia on driver and passenger side, that could be impacted by any occupants knees. The body shell showed that it can withstand further loadings. Child occupant: The Child Restraint System (CRS) initially recommended by Nissan failed during the frontal impact resulting in excessive forward movement of the 3 year old dummy. The installation instructions on both child seats were insufficient and not permanently attached to the seat. The chest protection offered to children was poor due to high loads. Nissan together with the CRS manufacturer worked to solve the failure presented in this test. The improved CRS are from batch 0007899 or higher of model Britax First Class.
