The Stonic has yet to be crash-tested by Euro NCAP, but it is available with plenty of safety kit. An optional pack on the 2 trim includes AEB (which can spot cars and pedestrians), lane departure warning, a driver attention monitor and high-beam assist.
That is all standard on the top-level First Edition model, which also includes blindspot monitoring.
All Stonics come with a standard alarm and immobiliser, along with deadlocking on all doors. Mind you, the C3 Aircross proved harder to break into and steal in Thatcham's security tests.
