Citroen C3 Crash Test: ZERO STARS (model produced in Brazil). The Citroen C3, produced in Brazil, was rated zero stars. The C3 offers as standard 2 airbags and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) achieved 30.52% in Adult Occupant, 12,10% in Child Occupant, 49.74% in Pedestrian Protection and Vulnerable Road Users and 34.88% in Safety Assist. The car was tested in frontal impact, side impact, whiplash, pedestrian protection and ESC. This safety equipment is the basic and only safety equipment specification available for this model.
The frontal impact showed weak protection to the driver chest and marginal to the passenger chest probably explained by the lack of pretensioners. The structure and the footwell area were rated as unstable. Pole impact was not performed as the car did not offer standard side head protection, not even as optional. Whiplash protection to the adult neck showed poor performance. Child occupant showed almost full protection, but the dynamic points were affected because of the poor marking of ISOFIX anchorages for Child Restraint Systems (CRS). Airbag warning marking in for the passenger seat does not meet Latin NCAP requirements and airbag disconnection in passenger seat position is not possible. Some CRSs failed in the installation assessment. The car does not prove to meet UN 127 or GTR 9 pedestrian protection regulations. Pedestrian protection subsystems showed marginal to good protection for the head with poor protection and weak protection areas closer to the windscreen edge and A pillar. Pelvis protection was adequate to good and leg protection was marginal. Seat Belt Reminder (SBR) in the front seat does not meet Latin NCAP requirements and it is not available for the passenger side and on the rear seat row.
