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.

The dummy's left knee and shin broke the plastic knee bolster and bent the metal structure underneath. Still, left leg injury risk was low.

Forces on the lower right leg and foot were high enough to indicate the possibility of injuries. The steering wheel was found pressed against the right thigh.
