1 Although not included in the star rating, the rear passenger dummy's abdominal rib deflection and thoracic rib deflection readings were elevated.

2 Due to the intrusion of the rear door during the side impact barrier test, the interior door panel struck the torso of the rear passenger dummy, causing high resultant lower spine acceleration of 84 g's. High resultant lower spine accelerations, in excess of 82 g's, have a higher likelihood of thoracic injury.
