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 well.

Smeared greasepaint indicates where the dummy's head brushed the side curtain airbag during rebound.

Forces on the lower right leg were high enough to indicate the likelihood of injuries.

Side

Rating applies to 2006-07 models

Tested vehicle: 2008 Hummer H3 4-door 4wd with standard front and rear head curtain airbags

The Hummer H3 was introduced in the 2006 model year. Beginning with 2008 models, side airbags were made standard (they were optional in 2006-07 models).

View of the vehicle and barrier just after the crash test.

View of the vehicle after the crash with doors removed, showing the side airbag and damage to the occupant compartment.

Smeared greasepaint shows where the driver dummy's head was protected from being hit by hard structures by the side curtain airbag.

Smeared greasepaint shows where the rear passenger dummy’s head was protected by the side airbag.
