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 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.
2012 Chevrolet Orlando 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 there were no hazadrs to occupants of different sizes or to
those sat in different seating positions. The Orlando scored maximum points
for the protection it provided in the side barrier test. The front seat and
head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injuries in a
Based on dummy readings in the frontal and side impact tests, the Orlando
scored maximum points for protection of the 18 month old child. The
passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint
to be used in that seating position. The switch is clearly marked and clear
information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag,
and the system was rewarded. Permanently attached labels clearly warn of
the dangers of using a rearward facing child seat in that position without
first disabling the airbag.
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.

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.
