1 Frontal and overall ratings do not apply to vehicles manufactured at the Iwate Plant in Japan on or after May 18, 2015 or with VINs on or after JTDKDTB34F1097986.

2 Although not included in the star rating, the rear passenger's abdominal rib deflection was elevated.

3 Due to the intrusion of the left rear door during the side impact test, the interior door panel struck the torso of the rear passenger dummy, causing a high lower spine acceleration. High lower spine accelerations, in excess of 82 g's, indicate a higher likelihood of thoracic injury.
