IIHS - 2013 Chevrolet Sonic - small overlap crash test / MARGINAL EVALUATION /
Chevrolet Sonic 2012-13 models 2013 Top Safety Pick SMALL OVERLAP FRONT TEST OVERALL EVALUATION: Marginal Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight Test details: The Chevrolet Sonic was introduced in the 2012 model year. The small overlap frontal ratings apply to both the 4-door sedan and hatchback (5-door) versions of the Sonic. Structure — The driver space was maintained reasonably well, with maximum intrusion of the lower interior of 15 cm, and the upper hinge pillar and instrument panel intruded 8-11 cm. Restraints/dummy kinematics — The dummy's head barely contacted the frontal airbag before sliding off the left side as the steering column moved to the right, leaving the head vulnerable to contact with forward side structure. Additionally, the seat belt allowed excessive forward excursion of the dummy's head and torso. The side curtain airbag deployed too late during the crash, after the head had moved to the left and was already rebounding, outboard of the inflating curtain, leaving the dummy's head vulnerable to contact with side structure and outside objects. Injury measures — Measures from the dummy indicate that injuries to the left knee and right lower leg would be possible in a crash of this severity. (Note: during the test, part of the injury data from the neck was not obtained, but after the Institute reviewed comparable test data from General Motors, the head/neck injury risk was rated good.) Additional features: Side airbags: front and rear head curtain airbags and front and rear seat-mounted torso airbags Rollover sensor: designed to deploy the side curtain airbags in the event of an impending rollover Driver and front passenger knee airbags: separate airbags in the lower instrument panel designed to minimize knee injuries in frontal crashes Electronic stability control Antilock brakes Daytime running lights Tested vehicle specifications: 2013 Chevrolet Sonic LT 4-door Class: Small car Weight: 2,779 lbs. Side airbags: front and rear head curtain airbags and front and rear seat-mounted torso airbags Wheelbase: 99 in. Length: 173 in. Width: 68 in. Engine: 1.8 L 4-cylinder EPA ratings: 25 mpg city | 35 mpg highway http://www.iihs.org/ratings/rating.aspx?id=1844&seriesId=737

The test vehicle, angled at 75 degrees, is then pulled sideways at 20 mph into a 25-cm diameter pole at the driver's seating location. This test mimics a side impact crash involving a narrow, fixed object like a utility pole or tree. -- Do you think this vehicle is safe when compared to others in the same class?
