Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.
Good Acceptable Marginal Poor
The Isuzu Rodeo and the Honda Passport were redesigned for the 1998 model year and structurally modified beginning with 2000 models to improve occupant protection in frontal crashes. Beginning with 2002 models, airbag modifications were made to further improve occupant protection.
Restraints/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 and grab handle.
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 both feet indicate that injuires to the lower leg and both feet would be possible. Head accelerations from the roof rail and grab handle hits were low.
Left to right:
- Action shot taken during the frontal offset crash test.
- The dummy's position in relation to the steering wheel and instrument panel after the crash test indicates that the driver's survival space was maintained well, despite some buckling of the A-pillar.
- Forces on the head when the dummy moved into the airbag were moderately high, indicating the possibility of head injuries.
- Forces on the right lower leg and both feet were high enough to indicate the possibility of injury.
- Antilock brakes
