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.
