Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. The side curtain airbags deployed, as intended by Saab (even for frontal impacts). After the dummy moved forward into the frontal airbag, its head brushed the side airbag and its fabric cover. The dummy continued to rebound into the seat without its head coming close to any stiff structure that could cause injury. Injury measures — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

Terrifying car crashes: New crash test revealed by Insurance Institute for Highway Safety
A new safety car crash test by an insurance group has found that half of the vehicles tested were rated 'marginal' or 'poor'. The test designed by the US based Insurance Institute for Highway Safety sees cars crash into a five-foot barrier on the drivers side, while travelling at 40 miles per hour. Half of the 12 small cars tested didn't meet the industry standards. The insurance group said that nearly a quarter of front-of-vehicle crashes result in serious injury or death. These type of crash tend to involve a single corner of the car, usually on the drivers side that comes into contact with vehicles or object. Report by Sarah Kerr.
