Crash Test 2003 - 2009 Saab 9-3 (Frontal Offset Test) IIHS
2009 Top Safety Pick 2009 Saab 9-3 (4-door sedan and wagon models): good performance in front, side, and rear tests and standard electronic stability control
FRONTAL OFFSET TEST
OVERALL EVALUATION: Good
Structure/safety cage Injury measures Restraints/dummy kinematics
Head/neck Chest Leg/foot, left Leg/foot, right
Good Good Good Good Good Good
Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.
The Saab 9-3 was redesigned for the 2003 model year.
The frontal offset crash test ratings also apply to the station wagon version of the 9-3, known as the SportCombi, beginning with its introduction in the 2006 model year.
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.

New crash tests: Underride guards on most big rigs leave passenger vehicle
occupants at risk in certain crashes
Modern semitrailers for the most part do a good job of keeping passenger
vehicles from sliding underneath them, greatly increasing the chances of
surviving a crash into the back of a large truck, recent tests by the
Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) show. But in crashes
involving only a small portion of the truck's rear, most trailers fail to
prevent potentially deadly underride.

~ 700hp Turbo Saab, 312kmh (194mph)
Extreme turbo Saab + 300 kmh
Many viewers have misunderstood this video, so I explain it a little:
-Speed at finish line (1mile/1609m) is measured. Time is not measured.
-First Saab does 1st and 2nd gear with ~half throttle. Second Saab has
limited Boost for 1st and 2nd gear.
- three extra seconds between 0-100kmh typically means ~30meters wasted.
But three extra seconds used in speeds close to 300kmh, means almost
Here is equally powerful RWD cars (if not even more HP's) These RWD's are a
lot faster between 0-150kmh, but
these Saabs are faster from
150kmh-300kmh. You get the point when you compare speeds at finish line.
-A Saab 9-5 driver pushes a little too much throttle @3rd gear and looses
traction. He lifts a throttle and pushes it back, but too much again and
then he gears up 4th, a bit earlier than planned. (optimal is@205kmh).
Earlier that summer I broke one gearbox when pushing too hard on 3rd gear.
With new gearbox and at later event, I drove very gently on first three
gears to avoid breaking it again. I pushed WOT for the first time on 4th
gear @ 190kmh. You can hear it clearly on following video. Engine tone
changes totally around 200kmh. Incar video is from 299kmh pull (at 1 mile
race) Something happened to camera during the run. So I didn't get any
incar video from a 305kmh pull. To see that run from the start line, please
see my other videos.
Here is incar video until camera dies. Start is @1min.

Crash Testing the 2013 Volvo XC60! - The Downshift Episode 51
We visit Ruckersville, VA and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's
Vehicle Research Center. IIHS is crash testing the 2013 Volvo XC60 in one
of their newest tests - the small overlap front test. On this episode of
The Downshift, learn why this kind of front overlap impact has such a
reputation for killing cars and their passengers, and find out if the Volvo
XC60 passes the test.
The Downshift appears every other Tuesday on the new Motor Trend channel.

1959 Chevrolet Bel Air vs. 2009 Chevrolet Malibu IIHS crash test
IIHS 50th anniversary demonstration test • September 9, 2009
In the 50 years since US insurers organized the Insurance Institute for
Highway Safety, car crashworthiness has improved. Demonstrating this was a
crash test conducted between a 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air and a 2009 Chevrolet
Malibu. In a real-world collision similar to this test, occupants of the
new model would fare much better than in the vintage Chevy.
"It was night and day, the difference in occupant protection," says
Institute president Adrian Lund. "What this test shows is that automakers
don't build cars like they used to. They build them better."
The crash test was conducted at an event to celebrate the contributions of
auto insurers to highway safety progress over 50 years. Beginning with the
Institute's 1959 founding, insurers have maintained the resolve,
articulated in the 1950s, to "conduct, sponsor, and encourage programs
designed to aid in the conservation and preservation of life and property
from the hazards of highway accidents."

Euro NCAP | Saab 9-3 | 2000 | Crash test
http://www.euroncap.com/tests/saab_9_3_2000/78.aspx Frontal 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.
