Mini and microcar bumpers
IIHS news release • June 11, 2009
Mini and microcar bumpers allow pricey damage; none of the 7 tested rates
good under new system
ARLINGTON, VA — Urban drivers often pick mini and microcars because
they're affordable, fuel efficient, and easy to park on city streets.
Fender-benders are hazards of urban driving, and just one of them can add
up to thousands of dollars in repair costs because the bumpers don't
adequately protect vehicles from damage. None of the bumpers on 7 mini and
microcars the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety recently tested earns
the top rating of good, and just 1, the Smart Fortwo, is acceptable. Five
out of the 7 earn poor ratings and 1 earns a marginal.

Chevy Tahoe (2007) - JRS Test
Here is a Jordan Rollover System (JRS) test on a 2007 Chevy Tahoe to
measure the roof strength. This Video Contains both roll 1 and roll 2 of
the same vehicle to simulate the actual event of a rollover (rollover
accidents usually involve more than one roll). As you will see the A and B
pillar both undergo significant roof crush.

Low-speed vehicle crash tests
IIHS news release • May 20, 2010
ARLINGTON, VA - Low-speed vehicles and minitrucks shouldn't share busy
public roads with regular traffic
More states are allowing a relatively new breed of vehicle on public roads,
but crash tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety show why the
mix of low-speed vehicles (LSVs) or minitrucks and regular traffic is a
deadly combination. LSVs are designed for tooling around residential
neighborhoods, and minitrucks are for hauling cargo off-road. While these
vehicles have a lot of appeal as a way to reduce emissions and cut fuel
use, they don't have to meet the basic safety standards that cars and
pickups do, and they aren't designed to protect their occupants in crashes.

ADAC - Small convertibles in the rollover test
Somersault in the ADAC crash test center: convertibles fly with just under
50 kilometers per hour through the air and land upside down. The
unfortunate result: Citroën C3 Pluriel, Mini Cooper and Peugeot 207 reveal
- as well as in 2003 tested models of the middle class by Mazda, Opel and
VW - a significant improvement.
Convertibles are in fashion: They look chic and bring to motorists the
Closer to Nature. But the missing roof earned him not only light and air,
but in very rare case of a rollover also unpleasantly close contact with
the earth. Reinforced windscreen frame and roll bar to prevent the worst.
To check whether the rollover protection for the passengers really works,
the ADAC crash test engineers have dropped three small current convertibles
on the head.
For the rollover we chose especially popular models: the extravagant
Citroen C3 Pluriel, the trendy Mini Cooper and the neat little Peugeot 207
CC. The rollover protection systems of this four-seat open-air versions are
designed differently. While Citroën only on the stability of the
windshield frame (A-pillar) is that BMW engineers have her convertible
standard added two fixed rollover bars and even two Peugeot automatically
EXTENDING high guard.
The rollover test, the ADAC engineers revealed again defects in occupant
protection: the front occupants of convertibles are poorly protected when
the A-pillars do not have the stability offered. Thus, the Citroën, are
exposed in both the front and rear passengers a very high risk of injury,
only get the ADAC "poor". The Mini conceded despite a stable windshield
frame for the first row of seats, the ADAC-grade "fair" and a backbencher
for "satisfactory". Of the very high outgoing automatic Überrollbügen the
Peugeot benefited particularly the second row, which with the ADAC score
pays "good", however, because it is the deformation joyful "A-pillar" for
front only the predicate "sufficient".
More safety in the convertible is not magic, however: In addition to the
essential stability of the windscreen frame and a sufficiently high rear
roll bar are seat belts with height adjustment and belt tensioner
triggering rollover protection as a fundamental essential. To avoid arcing
should be fitted every convertible also with the electronic stability
control. Here the vehicle manufacturers are required.
Individual result: Peugeot 207 CC:
The fresh sequel to the popular best-selling 206 CC has been just over a
year on the road. For occupant protection Peugeot automatically offers high
EXTENDING roll bar, which benefit especially the backbenchers. In return,
earned the Frenchman open the ADAC as "good", although the rear protection
for taller people (from 1.75 meters) is still in need of improvement. Less
sure of the seats in the front row because of the windshield frame
(A-pillar) with about 11 centimeters most deformed compared to test
competitors. Despite the rear roll bar so the front survival space is
drastically reduced, so here is the occupant protection only with the ADAC
grade of "satisfactory". In addition to all passengers is the lack of seat
belt height adjustment unfavorable and only the ignition pretensioners for
the dangerous sliding out counter of the straps.
Individual result: Mini Cooper Convertible:
The trendy classic rolls past seven years almost unchanged from the
southern English band. The rollover protection is solid: A stable framework
in conjunction with rear wheel, rigid roll bar offers the largest remaining
survival space of all test subjects. Unfortunately, this success is created
by unfavorable belts naught: In our test, the passenger slid sharply with
the upper body from the belt and hit very hard on the road. This dangerous
effect could be effectively reduced by a seat belt height adjustment and a
belt tensioner. Even the rear passengers are only befriedend protected
because the test was a brief head contact. The roll bars are also sized for
riders from 1.75 meters too short.
Individual result: Citroen C3 Pluriel:
With an extravagant design and a clever roof mechanism allows the French
car especially the hearts of fresh air loving women since mid-2003 beat.
Less trouble the Citroën designers have invested in the occupant
protection: An adequate rollover protection is absent when the Pluriel goes
with recessed roof rails over the country. This means that the front and
rear passengers exposed to a very high risk of injury for the passengers
can be total only rated "poor". To be in the Citroen nevertheless better
protected in the event of a rare rollover, you should not do without the
detachable roof bars.

Small pickup rollover protection

First time Institute ratings small pickups for rollover protection; only
one model rates good in test that assures strength of roof
ARLINGTON, VA — The Nissan Frontier has the strongest roof and the
Chevrolet Colorado the weakest among 5 small pickup trucks, all 2010
models, that recently were tested for rollover protection by the Insurance

Huge cost of mismatched bumpers
IIHS news release • December 2, 2010
Huge cost of mismatched bumpers: When bumpers on cars and SUVs don't line
up (and many of them don't), low-speed collisions produce more damage and
higher repair costs
ARLINGTON, VA — Bumpers are the first line of defense against costly
damage in everyday low-speed crashes. Bumpers on cars are designed to match
up with each other in collisions, but a long-standing gap in federal
regulations exempts SUVs from the same rules. New Insurance Institute for
Highway Safety crash tests demonstrate the results: SUV bumpers that don't
line up with those on cars can lead to huge repair bills in what should be
minor collisions in stop-and-go traffic.
