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.

During rebound, the dummy's head hit only the head restraint. Front lap/shoulder belts are mounted to the seats.

Smeared greasepaint indicates where the dummy's knees and shins hit the knee bolster. Injury risk was low.
