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.

1959 Chevrolet Bel Air vs. 2009 Chevrolet Malibu IIHS crash test
IIHS 50th anniversary demonstration test • September 9, 2009 In the 50 years since US insurers organized the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, car crashworthiness has improved. Demonstrating this was a crash test conducted between a 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air and a 2009 Chevrolet Malibu. In a real-world collision similar to this test, occupants of the new model would fare much better than in the vintage Chevy. "It was night and day, the difference in occupant protection," says Institute president Adrian Lund. "What this test shows is that automakers don't build cars like they used to. They build them better." The crash test was conducted at an event to celebrate the contributions of auto insurers to highway safety progress over 50 years. Beginning with the Institute's 1959 founding, insurers have maintained the resolve, articulated in the 1950s, to "conduct, sponsor, and encourage programs designed to aid in the conservation and preservation of life and property from the hazards of highway accidents."

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.

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 http://www.adac.de/infotestrat/tests/crash-test/cabrio_rollover_2014/defaul t.aspx?ComponentId=208289&SourcePageId=31799#tabid=tab1 Opel Cascada 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 avoided. http://www.adac.de/infotestrat/tests/crash-test/cabrio_rollover_2014/opel_c ascada.aspx?ComponentId=208336&SourcePageId=0 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. http://www.adac.de/infotestrat/tests/crash-test/cabrio_rollover_2014/renaul t_megane.aspx?ComponentId=208398&SourcePageId=0 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 manufacturer default. 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. http://www.adac.de/infotestrat/tests/crash-test/cabrio_rollover_2014/peugeo t_308.aspx?ComponentId=208354&SourcePageId=0 VW Golf Cabrio The VW Golf Cabriolet comes standard with front and side combined head-thorax airbags 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 be achieved. Rating dynamic head load : poor Valuation of static head protection ( habitat ) : poor http://www.adac.de/infotestrat/tests/crash-test/cabrio_rollover_2014/vw_gol f.aspx?ComponentId=208401&SourcePageId=0
