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.

Intrusion into the driver's space was minimal, and all leg and foot measures indicated low risk of injury.

Smeared greasepaint indicates where the dummy's knees and shins hit the knee bolster and steering column.
