Restraints and dummy kinematics

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.

Smeared white greasepaint shows where the dummy's head hit the head restraint and shoulder belt housing during rebound. Front lap/shoulder belts are mounted to the seats.

There was little change in the position of the dummy's feet following the crash test. Injury risk was low.
