The tested model of Daihatsu Sirion was introduced in Australia during 2005.
The left-hand-drive European model with side airbags was tested by Euro NCAP. Australasian specifications may vary and therefore models sold in Australasia might provide different levels of protection to those described on this page.
Dual front airbags are standard in Australia. ABS/EBD brakes, side airbags and head-protecting side curtains are available with an optional safety pack. The vehicle tested by Euro NCAP had side-thorax airbags but no curtain. Advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats in Europe and the above score includes two bonus points for this feature. The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt. Pre-tensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two point seat belt.
