ADAC-Crashtest: Wildunfälle „saugefährlich"
http://www.focus.de/videos - Mit einem ungewöhnlichen Crashtest VW Golf
gegen Wildschweinrotte wirbt der ADAC eindrucksvoll für Vorsicht bei
Wildwechseln. Tipp für Autofahrer im Fall der Fälle: Draufhalten, nur
bremsen, nicht ausweichen.
2007 Ford Expedition | Dynamic Rollover Test by NHTSA | CrashNet1
This dynamic rollover crash test was conducted to investigate the dynamics
of belted occupants during rollover crashes. This test was conducted with a
modified 2007 Ford Expedition on the FMVSS 208 rollover cart moving at 48.1
km/h (29.9 mph), releasing the vehicle with its roll axis perpendicular to
the direction of rollover cart motion, and first contacting the passenger's
side. The vehicle was modified by replacing the rear seat with a
modified front seat to simulate similar characteristics in both seating
positions. The center console was also removed. The air bags were disabled
for this test condition. The OEM belts and buckles were replaced in all
positions. The driver and left rear seats were replaced with a seat with
integrated 3-Point belts without pretensioners. The right front position
was equipped with a motorized retractor and a pretension buckle system1.
The pretensioner was fired manually at 300ms into the event and the
motorized retractor was manually activated prior to launch.
Thumbs up for the crash test dummies!

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.

At Volvo, the ability to replicate road accidents contributes to
world-class crash safety.
Volvo's crash-test laboratory in Torslanda turns 10 this year - and the
almost 3,000 full-scale tests that have been carried out during the
high-tech facility's first decade have helped give Volvo owners some of the
"We can replicate most of the incident and accident scenarios that take
place out on the roads. By analyzing these and then testing new safety
technology in the crash-test laboratory, we can improve the safety level in
our cars so that they become even safer in real-life traffic conditions,"
says Thomas Broberg, Senior Safety Advisor at Volvo.
When the new safety center was inaugurated by Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf
in early 2000, it was one of the most advanced in the car industry - a
position it has retained over the years thanks to the continuous
implementation of new equipment and new test methods.
The latest technology infusion is in the form of a set of digital
high-speed cameras that can take 200,000 frames per second.
ADAC - Rollover crash test of compact convertibles
A rollover occurs in a convertible although very rare, but when it happens,
it represents the highest loads on the body: for the heavily loaded roof
area is also the weakest point. Therefore, the ADAC has simulated with four
popular convertibles of the lower middle class a rollover to see how stable
and reliable the windscreen frame and automatically extending roll-over
bar. Because if a convertible may be safe here, then it must also create
the other. The Opel Cascada shows how to do it. That on the other hand, the
market leader Volkswagen with its own safety claim can not be just, is
regrettable. What about the chances of survival of the occupants both front
and rear, you will see the results in detai - on ADAC website
The convertible from Opel has extensive safety features , the Cascada
offers front and sides combined head - thorax airbags , belt tensioners for
all seats . Behind the rear seats is the standard rollover protection
system which is ignited pyrotechnic in an emergency.
The A -pillar of the Opel Cascada is pressed on the passenger side by about
12 cm down. This strong deformation leads to head contact of the front
passenger dummies with the ground. The impact of the head on the floor
caused loads that have a high injury risk. Thanks to the well-functioning
active roll bar and seat belt pretensioners for front seat occupants the
head burden remains with the driver comparatively low, a head contact is
Renault Mégane CC
The Renault Megane CC comes standard with front, side and head airbags .
Also belt tensioners are fitted to the front seats. Without this charge is
also an active rollover protection system .
The front window frame of the Renault Megane CC is pressed over the entire
width of the vehicle by about 5-7 cm downwards. Due to this deformation , a
head contact of both front seat occupants done with the ground. The hard
head impact leads to loads that exceed the biomechanical limits.
Peugeot 308 CC
The Peugeot 308 CC offers a good safety features , it includes standard
front , side and head airbags . Also belt tensioners are installed in the
first row of seats. The active rollover protection system is used by the
The A -pillar of the Peugeot 308 CC is pressed on the passenger side by
about 4 inches down. Due to this deformation of the head contact of the
front passenger dummies can not be avoided with the bottom of the Peugeot .
It depends on several occasions to head impacts both occupants of the first
row of seats. The load values were increased and it can be assumed
that an increased risk of injury.
VW Golf Cabrio
The VW Golf Cabriolet comes standard with front and side combined
and a knee airbag for the driver . For the front passenger seat belt
tensioners are fitted. The active rollover protection system comes as
standard , it sits behind the head restraints in the second row .
The A -pillars of the VW Golf Cabriolet are strongly deformed ; on the
driver's side is pressed by 8 cm, the . , on the passenger side as much as
15 cm For this reason the VW Cabriolet offers from all four vehicles the
most unstable rollover protection for the front seats. Unfortunately, this
is also confirmed by the dynamic loads. It can be measured in the test head
loads that exceed the biomechanical limits. Overall, both occupants of the
front seats have contact with the ground . The survival space for the front
seats is very limited after the experiment. So this was for the 5 % female
(1.55 m ) at around 41 mm. This could not score for the 50 % - and 95 % man
Rating dynamic head load : poor
Valuation of static head protection ( habitat ) : poor
