n the frontal offset deformable barrier impact, the level of protection for the driver’s knees and torso was deemed as “Adequate,” and so was the passenger’s chest. However, the level of protection for the driver’s thighs was ranked as “Weak.” Perhaps they should not have skipped leg day.

Whiplash protection was good for the necks of the front and rear occupants, and so was the one provided in a side impact with a car. A side impact with a pole provided “Adequate” protection for the torso. The full frontal impact test had “Marginal” protection for the chest of the rear passengers, “Marginal” for the driver’s neck, and “Adequate” for the thighs of the same mannequin.

The last grades were given because of an incorrect deployment of the knee airbag in the full-width test, which led to penalties for the body region in both frontal impact tests.

Dummy readings for both legs were “Good,” EuroNCAP says, but they still had to apply penalties for the unsatisfactory deployment of the knee bag. BMW stated that the airbag deployment seen in EuroNCAP’s test was “anomalous,” and that this had not been observed in their development tests.
