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.

Footwell intrusion contributed to the likelihood of left leg injury. The dummy's right leg finished trapped at the heel in the buckled floor.

There was moderate deformation of the occupant compartment along the roof rail, but the structural integrity of the driver door was maintained well.
