Good Acceptable Marginal Poor
The Ford Windstar was introduced in the 1995 model year.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. After the dummy moved forward into the airbag, it rebounded into the seat without its head coming close to any stiff structure that could cause injury.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.
Left to right:
- Action shot taken during the frontal offset crash test.
- Post-crash damage shot.
- During the offset test, rearward movement of the left front wheel caused the floor structure to separate from the door sill.
- Built-in child restraints (optional)
- Antilock brakes
