Look out for the battery being launched out of the front of the car !!!
Strange the car doesn't have headrests as they are key part for safety
Wow pretty harsh test. It gets a good rating though (their highest category).
Wow. That makes you think huh! How fast was the car going? Airbags or not that driver is dead if not very badly hurt!
Dead? What? The driver would likely have walked away from that unaided.
Really? Looks like his head went around the airbag straight into the wheel?
What territory was this test conducted for? Guess North America by the hideous yellow indicators in the headlights.
I thought it went between the airbags as well
It's a 40 mph crash test.
The results say:
Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.
So yeah he'd walk away. The head did slide to the side and go between the airbags, but it didn't actually hit the pillar.
Full crash test details are here: Vehicle details
Wow. Well hats off to modern safety measures!
What on earth is that barrier made of?! It was barely scratched, let alone deformed in any way!
Bear in mind that's a simulation of hitting an immovable object such as a tree, rather than another vehicle which would deform with its own crumple zones and, as such, is a very harsh test.
Thanks for the links. Agree with Vertigo1.
Looks like a solid car & more so for the barrier! One of the offset crashes appeared to take out the wheel and wing completely so wonder how the drivers legs survived....
.... and when you see the crash at the end of the F1 race in Canada you similarly wonder how driver's survive. Safety structures and systems are quite amazing nowadays aren't they?
Appears to be solid steel plate (probably an inch or so thick), presumably filled with concrete and concreted into the floor too.
Wow modern esp is one effective mofo!
