SMALL OVERLAP FRONT TEST
Structure/safety cage Injury measures Restraints/dummy kinematics
Head/neck Chest Hip/thigh Lower leg/foot
Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.
The Honda Civic was re-engineered for the 2013 model year.
Structure — The driver space was maintained well, with maximum intrusion of the lower interior of 15 cm, and the upper hinge pillar and instrument panel intruded 5-7 cm.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — The dummy’s movement was well controlled. The dummy’s head loaded the frontal airbag, which stayed in front of the dummy until rebound. The side curtain airbag deployed and had sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with side structure and outside objects. The side torso airbag also deployed.
Injury measures — Measures from the dummy indicate that injuries to the left lower leg would be possible in a crash of this severity. (Note: during the test, injury data from the neck were not obtained, but after the Institute reviewed comparable test data from Honda, the head/neck injury risk was rated good.)
