► 2012 Volvo C30 Electric - CRASH TEST

At the Detroit Auto Show 2011 Volvo Cars is spotlighting the important issue of electric car safety in an unusual, but distinctive way. On the company's stand there is a Volvo C30 Electric that has undergone a frontal collision test at 40 mph (64 km/h). "Our tests show it is vital to separate the batteries from the electric car's crumple zones to make it as safe as a conventional car. In Detroit we are the first car maker to show the world what a truly safe electric car looks like after a collision with high-speed impact," says Volvo Cars' President and CEO Stefan Jacoby.

► Dacia Duster - Andros Trophy 2011
The acclaimed Trophée Andros is regarded globally as one of motor racing's most uniquely challenging disciplines. The wintry conditions encountered at a variety of challenging locations can shift extremely quickly, consequently calling for precise and almost instinctive driving skills. This makes the Championship an ideal hunting ground for driver of the Dacia Duster team, former Formula 1 star Alain Prost. As with previous years, Dacia demonstrate the robustness that has been worked into Duster's DNA. What's more, the rules which govern this exciting competition restrict the use of complex, costly technologies. This means that parts such as the chassis, gearbox and tyres must all comply with specific regulations.





2012 Volvo V60 CRASH TEST
The rating of the Volvo V60 has been upgraded from 2011 to 2012. The car is unchanged and test results have been carried over from the previous year. The 2012 rating reflects the performance of the V60 against Euro NCAP's latest requirements. Based on data reviewed by Euro NCAP, a similar level of safety performance can be expected from the Volvo S60 (2010-) Adult occupant The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact, the windscreen pillar being deformed rearward only 1mm after the test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Volvo showed that a similar level of protection would be provided for occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. In the side barrier test, the V60 scored maximum points, all body regions being well protected. In the more severe side pole impact, dummy readings of rib compression indicated marginal protection of the chest. The seat and its fixed-position head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injuries in a rear- end collision. Child occupant Both child dummies were seated rearward-facing in the frontal and side impact tests. The V60 gained maximum points for its protection of the dummies in the dynamic tests. The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. However, information provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag is not sufficiently clear. A non-permanent pictogram-only label gives insufficient warning of the dangers of using a rearward facing restraint in this seating position without first disabling the airbag. Pedestrian The bumper provided good protection in some of the areas tested and marginal in others. In most areas likely to be struck by a child, the bonnet provided good protection against head injuries. In those areas likely to be struck by an adult's head, protection was predominantly poor but good in several of the areas tested. ► SUBSCRIBE NOW: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=youcarpress ► FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/youcarpress ► TWITTER: http://www.twitter.com/youcartv ► GOOGLE+: http://plus.google.com/+YouCarPress





► 2012 Honda Civic CRASH TEST
► http://www.youcar.tv Honda's commitment to safety is embodied by the term 'Safety for Everyone' which means safety for drivers, passengers, pedestrians and all road users. This was at the forefront of the minds of the designers of the new Civic, unveiled in September. One of the ways that this is achieved in the new Civic is through the Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure, a front-mounted polygonal frame that is designed to prevent the cabin becoming deformed by distributing forces away from the passenger compartment. The new Civic also provides sophisticated pedestrian protection features, including windscreen wiper pivots designed to break away on impact and energy absorbing front wing mounts. The new Civic, developed specifically for the European market, will be offered exclusively as a five-door hatchback and will compete in the C-segment. It will reach European showrooms in early 2012.

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.
