The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and front passenger. Ford showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. The EcoSport scored maximum points for its protection of the front passenger dummy, with all body regions being well protected. In the side barrier test, protection of all regions was good and maximum points were scored. Even in the more severe side pole impact, protection of the chest was adequate and that of other body regions was good. The front seats and head restraints provided good protection against whiplash injury in the event of a rear-end collision.
