The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection for the knees and femurs of both the driver and front passenger dummies and Chevrolet showed that a similar level of protection would be offered to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different seating positions. The Aveo scored maximum points in the side barrier test, all body regions being well protected. Even in the more severe pole test, the chest was adequately protected. The seat and head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.
Maximum points were scored in the dynamic tests for the protection of the 3 year infant. The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded by Euro NCAP. Permanently attached labels also provide clear warnings that the passenger airbag should be disabled before a rearward facing child seat can be used in that position.
2012 Hyundai i40 CRASH TEST
The passenger compartment of the i40 remained stable in the frontal impact.
A driver knee airbag is standard equipment and dummy readings indicated
good protection of the knees, femurs and pelvis for both front seat
occupants. The steering column was considered a potential risk but Hyundai
demonstrated that other parts of the facia offered good protection. The i40
scored maximum points in the side barrier test and provided adequate chest
protection in the more severe side pole impact. The seat and head restraint
provided good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a
Forward movement of the 3 year dummy, sat in a forward-facing restraint,
was not excessive and both the 3 year and the 18 month dummies were
properly contained in the side impact test. The front passenger airbag can
be disabled to allow a rearward-facing restraint to be used in that seating
position and the i40 provides clear information to the driver regarding the
status of the airbag. A permanently attached label gives a clear warning of
the dangers of using a rearward facing seat in the passenger seat without
first disabling the airbag.
2011 BMW X3 CRASH TEST
The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy
readings indicated good protection for the knees and femurs of both the
driver and front passenger dummies and BMW showed that a similar level of
protection would be offered to occupants of different sizes and to those
sat in different seating positions. The X3 scored maximum points for the
protection it provided in the side barrier test. In the more severe side
pole impact, protection of the chest was weak. The front seat and head
restraint provided marginal protection against whiplash injuries in a
Based on dummy readings in the frontal and side impact tests, the X3 scored
maximum points for protection of the 3 year child and lost only a fraction
of a point for the 18 month old child. Althought the passenger airbag can
be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that
seating position, insufficient information is provided to the driver
regarding the status of the airbag preventing any reward for the system.
Permanently attached labels on the sun visor clearly warn of the dangers of
using a rearward facing child seat in that position without first disabling
2012 Chevrolet Aveo - ESC TEST
Electronic stability control is standard equipment across the Aveo range,
and met Euro NCAP's test requirements. The driver, front passenger and rear
seats are all covered by a standard-fit seatelt reminder. A warning is
given if the vehicle speed exceeds a limit se by the driver, a system that
was also rewarded by Euro NCAP.
► 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.

A small-sized adult female crash test dummy is placed in the
driver's seat and is secured with a seat belt. The test vehicle,
angled at 75 degrees, is then pulled sideways at 20 mph into
a 25-cm diameter pole at the driver's seating location. This
test mimics a side impact crash involving a narrow, fixed
object like a utility pole or tree.

Good Acceptable Marginal Poor
The Chevrolet Sonic was introduced in the 2012 model year as a replacement
for the Chevrolet Aveo.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. The
driver side curtain airbag deployed during the crash. After the dummy moved
forward into the frontal airbag, its head contacted the side curtain
Injury measures — Measures taken from the neck, chest, and both legs
indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this
severity. A high head acceleration occurred when the dummy's head hit the
steering wheel through the airbag, indicating that head injuries would be
