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





New roof strength tests
IIHS news release • March 24, 2009 Roof strength is focus of new rating system; 4 of 12 small SUVs evaluated earn top marks ARLINGTON, VA — The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is launching a new roof strength rating system to help consumers pick vehicles that will help protect them in rollover crashes. Twelve small SUVs are the first to be put to the test. Only 4 earn the top rating of good. The Volkswagen Tiguan has the strongest rated roof, and the Kia Sportage has the weakest among the 2008-09 models evaluated. Full text of release at http://www.iihs.org/news/rss/pr032409.html





Huge cost of mismatched bumpers
IIHS news release • December 2, 2010 Huge cost of mismatched bumpers: When bumpers on cars and SUVs don't line up (and many of them don't), low-speed collisions produce more damage and higher repair costs ARLINGTON, VA — Bumpers are the first line of defense against costly damage in everyday low-speed crashes. Bumpers on cars are designed to match up with each other in collisions, but a long-standing gap in federal regulations exempts SUVs from the same rules. New Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash tests demonstrate the results: SUV bumpers that don't line up with those on cars can lead to huge repair bills in what should be minor collisions in stop-and-go traffic.

Safety consequences of vehicle size and weight
IIHS news release • April 14, 2009 New crash tests demonstrate the influence of vehicle size and weight on safety in crashes; results are relevant to fuel economy policies ARLINGTON, VA — Three front-to-front crash tests, each involving a microcar or minicar into a midsize model from the same manufacturer, show how extra vehicle size and weight enhance occupant protection in collisions. 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.

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!

Ford F750 / F650 The biggest SUV/PickUp truck EVER 2014
Ford F750 / F650 The biggest SUV/PickUp truck EVER 2014 ford f750 wiki ford f750 specs ford f750 startup ford f750 4x4 ford f650The Ford F-650/F-750 Super Duty are medium-duty commercial trucks produced by a joint venture of Ford Motor Company and Navistar International. They were introduced in 2000, replacing the previous-generation F-600, F-700, and F-800 trucks introduced in 1980. They are made mainly for use as utilitarian trucks for towing, heavy hauling, use in construction and are intended to appeal to businesses and municipalities.[1] They are primarily Class 6/7 trucks, but the 2011 model year F-750 expanded into the Class 8 range with a GVWR of 37,000 pounds (17,000 kg) due to frame and chassis upgrades. Although an F-Series truck, the F-650/750 Super Duty is also an indirect replacement for lower-end versions of the L-Series, in terms of GVWR and capability. The F-650 and F-750 are manufactured in Mexico in a joint venture with Navistar International called Blue Diamond Truck Company LLC. As of 2014, the medium-duty Super Duty is available in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Brazil.





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.

SUVs and pickups pose less risk to people in crashes
IIHS news release • September 28, 2011 Effort to make SUVs, pickups less deadly to car occupants in crashes is paying off ARLINGTON, VA - Today's SUVs and pickups pose far less risk to people in cars and minivans than previous generations, a new study from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety shows. Until recently, SUVs and pickups were more likely than cars or minivans of the same weight to be involved in crashes that killed occupants of other cars or minivans. That's no longer the case for SUVs, and for pickups the higher risk is much less pronounced than it had been. Full text of release at http://www.iihs.org/news/rss/pr092811.html





Weak federal standard allows deadly car-into-truck crashes
IIHS news release • March 1, 2011 Underride guards on big rigs often fail in crashes; Institute petitions government for new standard ARLINGTON, VA — New crash tests and analysis by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety demonstrate that underride guards on tractor-trailers can fail in relatively low-speed crashes — with deadly consequences. The Institute is petitioning the federal government to require stronger underride guards that will remain in place during a crash and to mandate guards for more large trucks and trailers.
