Driver 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 reasonably well.

Dummy movement was well controlled. During rebound, the dummy's head hit only the head restraint, as indicated by smeared greasepaint.

A knee airbag is housed behind the knee bolster plastic trim. Injury measures on the upper and lower legs were low, but not lower than in many vehicles with conventional bolsters.
