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. -- Do you think this vehicle is safe when compared to others in the same class?

IIHS - 2015 Chevrolet Sonic - small overlap crash test / GOOD EVALUATION
2015 Chevrolet Sonic Small car 2015 TOP SAFETY PICK Crashworthiness Small overlap front G Moderate overlap front G Side G Roof strength G Head restraints & seats G Rating scale: G = Good A = Acceptable M = Marginal P = Poor Small overlap crash test details: Applies to 2015 models built after February 2015 Overall evaluation G Structure and safety cage A Injury measures: Head/neck G Chest G Hip/thigh G Lower leg/foot G Restraints and dummy kinematics G Important: Frontal crash test ratings should be compared only among vehicles of similar weight. The Chevrolet Sonic was introduced in the 2012 model year. Beginning with 2015 models built after February 2015, the front-end structure, door sill, and hinge pillar were modified to improve occupant protection in small overlap frontal crashes. Also, the side curtain airbags were lengthened and reprogrammed to deploy earlier in small overlap crashes. The small overlap frontal ratings apply to both the 4-door sedan and hatchback (5-door) versions of the Sonic. Structure The driver space was maintained reasonably well, with maximum intrusion of the lower interior of 9 cm at the footrest and adjacent footwell, and the instrument panel and upper hinge pillar intruded 7-8 cm. Injury measures Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity. Restraints and dummy kinematics The dummy’s movement was well controlled. The dummy’s head loaded the frontal airbag, which stayed in front of the dummy until rebound. The side curtain airbag deployed and has sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with side structure and outside objects. The side torso airbag also deployed.

► 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.





2017 Mercedes E-Class Crash Test - Better than 5 Stars
2017 Mercedes E-Class Crash Test - Better than five stars The E-Class's occupant safety, child safety, pedestrian protection and assistance systems have been awarded a five-star Euro NCAP rating. The Saloon was a particularly deserving recipient of this top rating since in the crash tests in all four categories it significantly outperformed the standard required by Euro NCAP in order to attain the top score of five stars. Category Result E-Class Five-star cut-off Occupant safety 95% 80% Child safety 90% 75% Pedestrian protection 77% 60% Assistance systems 62% 50% The E-Class Saloon also achieved two Euro NCAP "Advanced" awards for PRE‑SAFE® and ATTENTION ASSIST – both awards go beyond the star rating and underline particular safety innovations. The E-Class Saloon owes these impressive results primarily to the combination of its high-strength passenger safety cell with highly effective restraint systems and the large number of driver assistance systems on board. Active Brake Assist, for example, is a standard feature. It is able to warn the driver of impending collisions, provide support with emergency braking and, if necessary, apply the brakes autonomously. Likewise included as standard are ATTENTION ASSIST with adjustable sensitivity, which can warn the driver of inattentiveness and drowsiness, and Crosswind Assist. Other driver assistance systems are available as an option, including DRIVE PILOT, which marks a further milestone on the road to automated driving, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist and Traffic Sign Assist with wrong-way warning function. Some of these optional systems, however, have not yet been taken into consideration in the Euro NCAP assessment. Active and passive safety are intelligently combined with the PRE-SAFE® system, which is able to recognise critical situations on the road and, where there is the threat of an accident, trigger preventive measures to protect the occupants. PRE‑SAFE® Impulse Side is available as an option for the E-Class for the first time. If it detects the immediate threat of a lateral collision, this new subsystem is able to move the driver or front passenger away from the danger zone as a preventive measure, effectively creating a virtual crumple zone for the side of the vehicle. Another new feature is the standard PRE-SAFE® Sound system. Immediately before a collision it can trigger a natural protective reflex in the ear, preparing the occupants for the noise of the accident in order to reduce potential damage to their hearing. Mercedes-Benz takes the protection of more vulnerable road users such as children very seriously. This also applies to pedestrians and cyclists. The E-Class Saloon features an active bonnet which can be raised 80 millimetres during an impact to provide additional deformation space. In addition Active Brake Assist is not only able to recognise slow-moving, stopping or stationary vehicles but also pedestrians crossing in the danger zone in front of the vehicle and can brake autonomously to prevent a collision with a pedestrian. With features such as these, the E-Class's impressive pedestrian protection standards far exceed statutory requirements. The E-Class Saloon's success in the Euro NCAP rating is the result of Mercedes‑Benz's holistic safety philosophy. Instead of focusing solely on rating requirements, the company uses findings from its own accident research to develop internal test standards and test criteria that go beyond what is required by law.
