Actual Crash Test Cars
U.S. organization IIHS (Insurance Institute For Highway Safety) has recently released the latest results of their crash tests. This time attracted the attention of engineers, two-door coupe, viability and decided to check with traditional procedures. It is worth noting that these results from the company demanded ordinary buyers have shown interest in such a study. For obvious reasons, the crash tests of four-door versions can not be considered a priori identical tests related coupe versions, as they differ structurally. So the main goal in this study - to compare how different security measures in the same model with a different structure of the body.
This time in the pool of death included representatives of the compact class and a member of the middle class. Uncle was in kindergarten Volvo C30, with which about defomiruemoe obstacle crashed Honda Civic, Ford Focus, Chevrolet Cobalt and Scion tC. Four-door versions of the models Civic, Focus and Cobalt have already visited the trials because they represented the greatest scientific interest. Well, Scion tC, and Volvo C30 were just nice extras.
All participants traditionally held three rounds of tests, surviving the front, side and rear crash tests. Recall that in the IIHS tests are a little different from the research conducted by other organizations. Thus, the frontal test runs at a speed of 64 km / h Simulates a side impact collision with a certain SUV, which has the subject in the driver's side at a speed of 50 km / h, and at the rear test, first make an assessment of the geometry of the head restraint, and then to carry out the usual procedure at a speed of 32 km / h.
After these tests, the title of Top Safety Pick 2009 earned Volvo C30, with excellent results on all counts. But we, as Americans, are more interested in the difference between the coupe and four-door car . So, my honored Top Safety Pick 2009 earned a two-door Ford Focus, equipped with front and side airbags, as well as a stabilization system, which is optionally available in 2009, which also adds points to the common fund. Four-door version of the car on the test was not as successful, showing less decent results in a side collision. Quite an interesting fact, given that the coupe version of the side glass area more, and the doors are much larger.
But the Honda Civic has developed the reverse situation: two-door version was rated "A" (Acceptable) in a side collision, resulting in a Top Safety Pick, 2009, awarded a four-door version of the previous trials, the beginner has not got. Chevrolet Cobalt is also not shocked crowd. His four-door version was the most "G" (Good) in the frontal test, the "A" side and a "G" for the rear. Coupe version showed the same results in the first two disciplines, but the third test Chevy has not had time to go. Well, the main loser in this series of tests was the Scion tC , received "A", "A", "M" (Marginal). In addition, he is also not equipped with the system of stabilization.
New Test Report to come soon. This time should be to please colleagues engineers from IIHS - European EuroNCAP . They promise to publish their latest research at the end of August. The latter study of Europeans affected actual models - Audi Q5, Honda Jazz, Hyundai i20, KIA Soul, Peugeot 3008, Suzuki Alto. Of all these candidates was the safest Audi. But here it is necessary to take into account the size of the compact SUV. His little fellow tests also do not lose face, earning for "5 stars". The only model that failed to achieve testing, - Suzuki Alto. This baby was only "three stars".
So before buying a car always study the results of the survey organizations vehicle safety, because this information at any time can become vital.
