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.

The frontal airbag and both side airbags inflated for the driver dummy. Smeared greasepaint indicates where the dummy's head hit the side curtain airbag, its fabric cover, and the head restraint during rebound.

Forces on both legs and feet were low, indicating that significant injury was unlikely.
