The Nissan Kicks was introduced in the 2018 model year as a replacement for the Nissan Juke. Passenger-side small overlap frontal ratings are assigned by the Institute based on a test conducted by Nissan as part of frontal crash test verification.

The passenger space was maintained reasonably well, with maximum intrusion of the lower interior of 17 cm at the lower hinge pillar. Maximum upper interior intrusion measured 13 cm at the dashboard.

Passenger injury measures
Measures from the dummy indicate that injuries to the right knee and right lower leg would be possible in a crash of this severity. The risk of significant injuries to other body regions is low.

Passenger restraints and dummy kinematics
The dummy’s movement was well controlled. The dummy’s head loaded the frontal airbag, which stayed in front of the dummy until rebound. The side curtain airbag deployed and has sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with side structure and outside objects. The side torso airbag also deployed.

Driver injury measures
Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

In the test, the strength of the roof is determined by pushing a metal plate against one side of it at a slow but constant speed. The force applied relative to the vehicle's weight is known as the strength-to-weight ratio. This graph shows how the ratio varied as the test of this vehicle progressed. The peak strength-to-weight ratio recorded at any time before the roof is crushed 5 inches is the key measurement of roof strength.

A good rating requires a strength-to-weight ratio of at least 4. In other words, the roof must withstand a force of at least 4 times the vehicle's weight before the plate crushes the roof by 5 inches. For an acceptable rating, the minimum required strength-to-weight ratio is 3.25. For a marginal rating, it is 2.5. Anything lower than that is poor.

The Toyota C-HR was introduced in the 2018 model year. Passenger-side small overlap frontal ratings are assigned by the Institute based on a test conducted by Toyota as part of frontal crash test verification.

The passenger space was maintained reasonably well, with maximum intrusion of the lower interior of 11 cm at the lower hinge pillar. Maximum upper interior intrusion measured 11 cm at the dashboard and 10 cm at the hinge pillar.
