Passive Safety (Body)
The bodies of Daihatsu cars comply with all Japanese and European collision safety standards and rank at the head of their class in collision safety. Each of our cars reflects the results of extremely rigorous testing aimed at meeting the world's highest safety targets, in areas such as full-lap front and side impacts at 55 km/h, and offset frontal impacts at 64 km/h.
The new Cuore introduces a newly designed platform that improves impact absorption and cabin rigidity while reducing weight. It features stronger, straight side members; an impact-dispersing body structure; and high tensile strength steel for side members, rocker panels, side panels, and other parts. This advanced new platform is a reflection of Daihatsu's commitment to continually improving small-car safety.
A Body Structure Designed to Minimise Pedestrian Injury

Safety measures have been taken to minimise possible injury to the head area should a pedestrian be struck by the vehicle. These include impact-dampening devices and impact-absorbing spaces in the fenders, bonnet, bonnet hinges, and windscreen wiper pivots.
The new Cuore easily meets or exceeds both Japanese and European collision safety standards. It is subjected to a battery of in-house tests based on the stringent testing methods used around the world. It aims to meet the targets that are set for Daihatsu's own rigorous standards. And it undergoes car-to-car collision safety tests that closely simulate the types of accidents that occur in actual driving. The results of all these efforts are small cars that stand out for collision safety.
