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

The Isuzu Axiom was introduced in the 2002 model year.

Injury measures

Measures taken from the neck and chest indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity. Forces on the head indicate that injuries to the head would be possible. Forces on the right tibia and left foot indicate that injuries to the lower leg and foot would be possible. Head acceleration from the roof rail hit was negligible.

Restraints and dummy kinematics

Dummy movement was reasonably well controlled. The driver's seat tipped toward the door. During rebound, the dummy's head hit the roof rail.
