MODERATE OVERLAP FRONT TEST

Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.
Good Acceptable Marginal Poor
The Nissan Quest was redesigned for the 2004 model year.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was reasonably well controlled. There was too much upward steering wheel movement. During rebound, the deployed driver side curtain airbag kept the dummy's head away from the B-pillar.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the neck, chest, and both legs indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity. A high head acceleration occurred when the dummy's head hit the steering wheel through the airbag, indicating that injuries to the head would be possible.
Left to right:
- Action shot taken during the frontal offset crash test; the side curtain airbag on the driver side inflated during the crash.
- 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.
- The Quest's front head restraints have marginal geometry -- they are sufficiently high but too far back from an occupant's head.
- The inflated side curtain airbag kept the dummy's head away from hard structure during rebound.
- Side airbags: head curtain airbags for all three rows of seats (standard); front seat-mounted torso airbags (standard beginning with 2008 models, optional in 2004-07 models)
- Electronic stability control (optional)
- Antilock brakes
