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 very well.

Smeared greasepaint indicates where the dummy's head hit the A-pillar. Head acceleration from this hit was low.

Forces on the lower right leg were just high enough to indicate the possibility of injuries.
