Crash Test 2008 - Saturn (Discontinued) / Opel / Holden Astra (Side Impact) IIHS
SIDE IMPACT TEST WITH STANDARD SIDE AIRBAGS
OVERALL EVALUATION: Marginal
Injury measures Head protection Structure/safety cage
Head/neck Torso Pelvis/leg
Driver Good Acceptable Good Good Acceptable
Rear passenger Good Poor Acceptable Good
Important: Side impact crash test ratings can be compared across vehicle type and weight categories.
The Saturn Astra was introduced in the 2008 model year.
Driver — Measures taken from the dummy indicate that rib fractures and/or internal organ injuries would be possible in a crash of this severity. The risk of significant injuries to other body regions is low.
Rear passenger — Measures taken from the dummy indicate that rib fractures and/or internal organ injuries as well as a left femur fracture would be possible in a crash of this severity. In addition, loading to the shoulder was excessive.
Driver — The dummys head was protected from being hit by any hard structures, including the intruding barrier, by a side curtain airbag that deployed from the roof and a side airbag that deployed from the seat.
Rear passenger — The dummys head was protected from being hit by any hard structures, including the intruding barrier, by a side curtain airbag that deployed from the roof.
Euro NCAP | Opel/Vauxhall Astra | 2004 | Crash test
Impact takes place at 64 Km/h, 40% of the width of the car striking a
deformable barrier. In the side impact, a mobile deformable barrier impacts
the driver's door at 50 km/h. In the pole test, the car tested is propelled
sideways at 29km/h into a rigid pole.
Vauxhall Astra Mark 4 Test Crash
With the help of Thatcham Motor Insurance Research Centre, we crashed a
Mark 4 Astra to demonstrate what happens in a crash at a speed of under 30
The doors and b pillar have been removed from one side to allow a better
view of what happens inside the car as it crashes. The removal of these
won't have overly affected the way the vehicle behaves.

Buick Verano / Opel Astra | 2013 | Frontal Crash Test | NHTSA | CrashNet1
2013 Buick Verano (Buick Excelle GT/Opel Astra )
Crash test dummies representing an average-sized adult
male and a small-sized adult female are placed in the
driver and front passenger seats, respectively, and are
secured with seat belts. Vehicles are crashed into a fixed
barrier at 35 mph (56.3km/h), which is equivalent to a
head-on collision between two similar vehicles each moving
at 35 mph.
Thumbs up for the crash dummies!

Crash Test 2009 Subaru Impreza (Full Test) EuroNcap
Tested model Subaru Impreza 2.0R, RHD
Body type 5 door hatchback
Year of publication 2009
Kerb weight 1370kg
VIN from which rating applies applies to Imprezas ordered from February 18
Class SMALL FAMILY
Front seatbelt pretensioners
Front seatbelt load limiters
Driver frontal airbag single stage
Front passenger frontal airbag single stage
Side body airbags
Side head airbags
The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal test, the
windscreen pillar moving rearward by only 3mm. The knees and femurs of both
the driver and passenger were well protected. Subaru showed that occupants
of different sizes, or those sat in different positions, would be similarly
well protected. High rib deflections indicated poor protection of the chest
in the side pole test. Inspection of the car after the side barrier impact
revealed that the rear door on the struck side was prevented from opening
fully only by the secondary latch, for which the car was penalised. The
protection offered against whiplash injury was rated as marginal.
Based on dummy readings alone, the Impreza scored maximum points for
protection of the 3 year old in the front and side impacts. The passenger
airbag cannot be disabled so a rearward facing child restraint should not
be used in that seating position. The label warning of the dangers of doing
so was not available in the languages of all the countries in which the car
is sold and was not rewarded. The presence of ISOFIX anchorages in the rear
outboard seats was not clearly marked.
The bumper scored maximum points for the protection offered to pedestrian's
legs. The bonnet offered good protection in most areas likely to be hit by
a child's head.
As a result of Euro NCAP's new rating scheme, Subaru have made electronic
stability control more widely available. From the middle of February 2009,
Subaru Vehicle Dynamics Control is available as standard on most Impreza
variants and as an option on all others throughout Europe. Consumers should
be aware that some cars in stock may not be equipped with Vehicle Dynamics
Control and Euro NCAP encourages them to choose those which are. The car
has a seatbelt reminder system for the driver's seat.
