Mini and microcar bumpers
IIHS news release • June 11, 2009 Mini and microcar bumpers allow pricey damage; none of the 7 tested rates good under new system ARLINGTON, VA — Urban drivers often pick mini and microcars because they're affordable, fuel efficient, and easy to park on city streets. Fender-benders are hazards of urban driving, and just one of them can add up to thousands of dollars in repair costs because the bumpers don't adequately protect vehicles from damage. None of the bumpers on 7 mini and microcars the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety recently tested earns the top rating of good, and just 1, the Smart Fortwo, is acceptable. Five out of the 7 earn poor ratings and 1 earns a marginal. Full text of news release: http://www.iihs.org/news/rss/pr061109.html

Low-speed vehicle crash tests
IIHS news release • May 20, 2010 ARLINGTON, VA - Low-speed vehicles and minitrucks shouldn't share busy public roads with regular traffic More states are allowing a relatively new breed of vehicle on public roads, but crash tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety show why the mix of low-speed vehicles (LSVs) or minitrucks and regular traffic is a deadly combination. LSVs are designed for tooling around residential neighborhoods, and minitrucks are for hauling cargo off-road. While these vehicles have a lot of appeal as a way to reduce emissions and cut fuel use, they don't have to meet the basic safety standards that cars and pickups do, and they aren't designed to protect their occupants in crashes.

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.

These Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tests are about the physics of car crashes, which dictate that very small cars generally can't protect people in crashes as well as bigger, heavier models.
