1 The rear passenger's thoracic and abdominal rib deflections were 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. Lower spine accelerations in excess of 82 g's indicate a higher likelihood of thoracic injury.

3 These ratings apply to vehicles produced after February 28, 2017.
