ESP was due to be fitted to the 75 for the 2006 model year, as confirmed in another thread by Ex Tester and Rincewind.

Curtain airbags were available as you know, and a speed limiter was available on all models fitted with the Hi-line instrumentation.

Things like seat belt reminders are easy to engineer into a car, and would no doubt have been made standard, alongside curtain airbags and speed limiter.
