SUVs and pickups pose less risk to people in crashes
IIHS news release • September 28, 2011
Effort to make SUVs, pickups less deadly to car occupants in crashes is
ARLINGTON, VA - Today's SUVs and pickups pose far less risk to people in
cars and minivans than previous generations, a new study from the Insurance
Institute for Highway Safety shows. Until recently, SUVs and pickups were
more likely than cars or minivans of the same weight to be involved in
crashes that killed occupants of other cars or minivans. That's no longer
the case for SUVs, and for pickups the higher risk is much less pronounced
than it had been.

male and a small-sized adult female are placed in the
driver and front passenger seats, respectively, and are
secured with seat belts. Vehicles are crashed into a fixed
barrier at 35 miles per hour (mph), which is equivalent to a
head-on collision between two similar vehicles each moving
at 35 mph.
Thumbs up for the crash dummies!

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 Chevy Sonic makes a bungee jump!
When Chevrolet decided to launch the all-new Sonic in the States, it seems
they took the word 'launch' a little too seriously.
On the back of research that showed extreme sports to be highly popular
within the car's 18-30 target customer range, the company decided to make
quite an impact by throwing a car from the top of a ten storey tower in
Long Beach, California.
Well, we say impact. But just before it plummeted to the ground, the
all-new Aveo dipped its nose in a paddling pool and bounced back up in an
incredible display of non-contact automotive bungee-jumping.
The stunt was performed as part of Chevrolet's 'Let's do this' marketing
campaign in the USA.
The Bungee Jump is the second extreme sport in which the Aveo has
participated. Last month, the car was launched more quickly than any car in
history -- accelerating from 0-60mph in just 0.4 seconds as it was pushed
out of an aeroplane, to perform its first freefall skydive.
