We visit Ruckersville, VA and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's
Vehicle Research Center. IIHS is crash testing the 2013 Volvo XC60 in one
of their newest tests - the small overlap front test. On this episode of
The Downshift, learn why this kind of front overlap impact has such a
reputation for killing cars and their passengers, and find out if the Volvo
XC60 passes the test.

Air Bags and Seatbelts -- Mercedes-Benz Driving Safety Features
The air bag has never worked alone. Ever since its breakthrough production
debut in the 1981 S-Class, it's been paired with other complementary safety
features, beginning with the emergency tensioning device which cinches up a
vehicle's seatbelts, keeping occupants firmly in their seats. The number of
complementary systems has only grown since then, and the team shows no
signs of stopping any time soon.

New crash tests: Underride guards on most big rigs leave passenger vehicle
occupants at risk in certain crashes
Modern semitrailers for the most part do a good job of keeping passenger
vehicles from sliding underneath them, greatly increasing the chances of
surviving a crash into the back of a large truck, recent tests by the
Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) show. But in crashes
involving only a small portion of the truck's rear, most trailers fail to
prevent potentially deadly underride.

2012 Audi A6 CRASH TEST
The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. The A6 is
fitted with Audi's adaptive frontal airbags and seat belts. Sensors in the
front seat rails detect whether an occupant is positioned close to the
steering wheel (a small driver, for example) or more rearwards. The
restraint system is tuned accordingly, using special vents in the airbags
and seat belt load limiters adapted to the appropriate occupant size. In
the frontal test, the system worked well and both the driver and
passenger's heads were well protected. Dummy readings indicated good
protection of the dummies' knees and femurs. Audi showed that the car would
provide a similar level of protection to occupants of different sizes and
to those sat in different positions. In the side barrier impact, the dummy
indicated good protection of all body regions. However, the driver's door
was found to be unlatched after the test and the car was penalised for
this. In the pole test, the car provided marginal protection of the
driver's chest. The seat and head restraint provided good protection
against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.
Airbag test / demonstration
While removing engine, gearbox and some other goodies from this Mercedes we
thought we should disarm the airbags in the best possible way - by
These things are really, really scary - and by watching this video you can
easily understand the harm they could make if handled the wrong way.
