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.

Intrusion into the driver footwell area contributed to high injury measures on the dummy's right leg, indicating the likelihood of injury.

A strong safety cage helped keep the tire out of the driver footwell area.
