The situation is even worse with the Panda. It becomes only the second vehicle ever to record zero starts from Euro NCAP's tests following the Punto in 2017.

The Hyundai Santa Fe, for example, showed an issue where the side curtain airbags could be torn during deployment in vehicles equipped with the optional panoramic roof.
