Crash Test 2000 - 2005 (Discontinued) Dodge Neon (Front) IIHS
results also apply to: 2003-05 Dodge SRT-4 | 2000-01 Plymouth Neon
FRONTAL OFFSET TEST
OVERALL EVALUATION: Marginal
Structure/safety cage Injury measures Restraints/dummy kinematics
Head/neck Chest Leg/foot, left Leg/foot, right
Marginal Good Good Poor Acceptable Marginal
Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.
The Dodge and Plymouth Neon were redesigned for the 2000 model year. The Plymouth Neon was dropped after the 2001 model year, and the high-performance Dodge SRT-4 model was added in the 2003 model year. Both the Dodge Neon and SRT-4 were dropped after the 2005 model year.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement wasn't well controlled. As the dummy moved into the airbag, it also moved toward the driver door, which had bowed outward, and its head approached but didn't hit the window sill. There was too much rearward movement of the steering column, and during the impact the steering wheel broke off from the column.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the head, neck, and chest indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity. Forces on the left femur indicate that injuries to the upper leg would be likely. Forces on both tibias indicate that injuries to lower legs would be possible.

Understanding Car Crashes: It's Basic Physics
What happens to vehicles and their occupants in crashes is determined by
science. "You can't argue with the laws of physics," says Griff Jones,
award-winning high school physics teacher who goes behind the scenes at the
Institute's Vehicle Research Center to explore the basic science behind car
crashes. Using a series of vehicle maneuvers on a test track plus filmed
results of vehicle crash tests, Jones explains in anything but lecture
style the concept of inertia, the relationship between crash forces and
inertia, momentum and impulse, and a lot more.
Quote from Paul G. Hewitt, the developer of the "Conceptual Physics"
curriculum and author of the best selling text book by the same name: "The
video "Understanding Car Crashes: It's Basic Physics" and accompanying
teacher's guide are wonderful. The pacing is excellent, the coverage
fascinating, and most importantly, the physics is correct. It's a first
rate teaching package. I give it five stars!"

Get more info on the Smartcar
In recent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tests, the 2008 Smart
Fortwo, the smallest car for sale in the US market, earned the top rating
of good for front and side crash protection. Its seat/head restraints
earned the second highest rating of acceptable for protection against
whiplash in rear impacts. Smart Fortwo is classified a microcar, meaning
it's smaller even than minicars. Weighing about 1,800 pounds, the Smart is
more than 3 feet shorter and almost 700 pounds lighter than a Mini Cooper.
