Important: Frontal crash test ratings should be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.

The Chevrolet Lumina was redesigned for the 1995 model year. Note: 2001 Luminas were sold only to fleets.

Injury measures

Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of injuries in a crash of this severity. Head accelerations from the roof rail and B-pillar hits were low.

Restraints and dummy kinematics

Dummy movement was well controlled. During rebound, the dummy moved toward the driver door, and its head hit the roof rail and B-pillar.
