FRONTAL OFFSET TEST
OVERALL EVALUATION: Acceptable
Structure/safety cage Injury measures Restraints/dummy kinematics
Head/neck Chest Leg/foot, left Leg/foot, right
Acceptable Acceptable Good Good Good Acceptable
Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.
The Suzuki Grand Vitara and Suzuki Vitara were introduced in the 1999 model year, and the Chevrolet Tracker was redesigned the same year.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was reasonably well controlled. The driver door bowed outward and, during rebound from the airbag, the dummy moved up and toward the driver door, hitting the roof rail in front of the B-pillar.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the neck, chest, and both legs indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity. Forces on the head indicate that injuries to the head would be possible. Head acceleration from the roof rail hit was low.
2010 Suzuki vs. Suzuki Grand Vitara Challenge
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Most modern crossover vehicles (CUVs) are not
really designed to go off-road. But that's certainly not the case with the
Suzuki Grand Vitara which still retains the classic SUV body architecture.
So what's the best car to compare, at least off-road, to the Grand Vitara?
Of course, there's on;y one real answer...another Suzuki Grand Vitara.

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.
