Action shot taken during the small overlap frontal crash test.
The dummy's position in relation to the door frame, steering wheel, and instrument panel after the crash test indicates that the driver's survival space was maintained well.
The frontal and side curtain airbags worked well together to protect the head from injury in the crash test. Still, the inflated portion of the curtain airbag should extend farther forward toward the A-pillar to protect the head from contact with forward side structure and outside objects if crash circumstances were to differ slightly.
Intrusion into the driver's space was minimal, and risk of injuries to the dummy's legs and feet was low.
