MODERATE OVERLAP FRONT TEST
|Structure/safety cage||Injury measures||Restraints/dummy kinematics|
|Head/neck||Chest||Leg/foot, left||Leg/foot, right|
Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.
Good Acceptable Marginal Poor
The Chevrolet Lumina was redesigned for the 1995 model year. Note: 2001 Luminas were sold only to fleets.
Restraints/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.
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.
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 very well.
- Smeared greasepaint indicates where the dummy's head hit the roof rail and B-pillar during rebound.
- Footwell intrusion was less than in most other cars the Institute tested.
- Built-in child restraints (optional on 1996-98 models)
- Antilock brakes (optional)
- Daytime running lights (beginning with 1997 models)
