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!"

DEADLY Crashes: 2013 IIHS Crash Tests IIHS news release
New crash tests: Underride guards on most big rigs leave passenger vehicle
occupants at risk in certain crashes
Modern semitrailers for the most part do a good job of keeping passenger
vehicles from sliding underneath them, greatly increasing the chances of
surviving a crash into the back of a large truck, recent tests by the
Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) show. But in crashes
involving only a small portion of the truck's rear, most trailers fail to
prevent potentially deadly underride.

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."

Crash Testing the 2013 Volvo XC60! - The Downshift Episode 51
We visit Ruckersville, VA and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's
Vehicle Research Center. IIHS is crash testing the 2013 Volvo XC60 in one
of their newest tests - the small overlap front test. On this episode of
The Downshift, learn why this kind of front overlap impact has such a
reputation for killing cars and their passengers, and find out if the Volvo
XC60 passes the test.
The Downshift appears every other Tuesday on the new Motor Trend channel.
