Structure-Head/neck-Chest-Leg left-Leg right-Restraints
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 airbag.
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 possible.
2011 Chevrolet Aveo/Holden Barina EuroNCAP Crash Tests (Frontal, Side, & Pole Impacts)
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.
The bumper provided mostly good protection to pedestrians' legs. However,
the front edge of the bonnet was predominantly poor. The bonnet provided
good protection in most areas likely to be struck by the head of child but
was mostly poor in those areas where an adult's head would strike.
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
Holden Barina 2008 ANCAP Crash Test (4 stars)
Holden Barina 2008 with front, side and head airbags received a four star
occupant protection rating. Test by ANCAP, November 2008.

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.
