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 pink greasepaint indicates where the dummy's head hit the B-pillar during rebound. Head acceleration from this hit was negligible.
