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

2 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,have a higher likelihood of thoracic injury.
