Crash Test 2000 - 2005 (Discontinued) Dodge Neon (Front) IIHS

Dodge Neon 2000-05 models 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. Test details: 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.

Crash Test 2002 -2007 Subaru Impreza / Saab 9-2X IIHS
Subaru Impreza 2002-07 models mfg. after Sep. 2001 results also apply to: 2005-06 Saab 9-2X FRONTAL OFFSET TEST OVERALL EVALUATION: Good Structure/safety cage Injury measures Restraints/dummy kinematics Head/neck Chest Leg/foot, left Leg/foot, right Good Good Good Good Good Good Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight. Test details: The Subaru Impreza was redesigned for the 2002 model year. Imprezas manufactured after September 2001 include structural changes to improve occupant protection in frontal crashes (note: information about when a specific vehicle was manufactured is on the certification label typically affixed to the car on or near the driver door). The Saab 9-2X was introduced in the 2005 model year and discontinued after the 2006 model year. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has evaluated the crashworthiness of an Impreza with the structural changes in a 40 mph frontal offset crash test into a deformable barrier. The frontal offset crash test ratings also apply to the station wagon version of the Impreza, beginning with 2002 models manufactured after September 2001. The 9-2X was available only as a wagon. Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. During rebound, the dummy's head brushed the B-pillar. Injury measures — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity. Head acceleration from the B-pillar hit was negligible.
