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 hit the B-pillar during rebound, producing a high head acceleration.

There was minimal footwell intrusion as well as very little rearward movement of the instrument panel into the driver's survival space.
