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

This rating applies to vehicles other than the specific model and body style tested.

The Suzuki Forenza was introduced in the 2004 model year. The Reno hatchback was introduced in the 2005 model year, and both cars received side airbags and advanced frontal airbags in 2005.

Injury measures

Measures taken from the neck, chest, and left leg indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity. High head accelerations occurred when the dummy's head hit both the steering wheel through the airbag and the B-pillar, indicating that head injuries would be possible. Forces on the right tibia indicate that injuries to the lower leg would be possible.

Restraints and dummy kinematics

Dummy movement was reasonably well controlled. During rebound, the dummy's head hit the B-pillar and roof rail.
