Минивэн Mazda5 снимут с производства в 2015 году

1. Mazda 5

The Mazda 5 scored a “poor” in the small overlap front test, and a “marginal” in the side impact test. Driver space was seriously compromised by intruding structure. Lower interior intrusion measured 35 cm at the lower hinge pillar. Upper interior intrusion measured 34 cm at the hinge pillar and 25 cm at the instrument panel. The steering column was pushed back 15 cm towards the driver. Dummy measurements indicated that injury to the left thigh and lower left leg would be likely in a crash of this severity, and injuries to the left knee and right lower leg would be possible. During the crash, the driver’s door unlatched, which could lead to the driver being ejected from the vehicle. The dummy’s head barely contacted the airbag before sliding off the left side, as the steering column moved 14 cm to the right. The seat belt allowed excessive forward excursion of the dummy’s head and torso, leading to the dummy striking its head on the instrument panel.

2. Fiat 500

The Fiat 500 earned a “poor” rating in the small overlap front test, leading to a low overall safety rating. Driver’s space was seriously compromised by intruding structure. Upper interior intrusion measured 19 cm at the upper hinge panel and instrument panel. Lower interior intrusion measured as much as 21 cm and the hinge pillar and 20 cm at the footrest. The steering column was pushed back 7 cm toward the driver. The driver door hinges were torn apart and the door opened at the front, which shouldn’t happen because the driver could be partly or completely ejected from the vehicle. The dummy’s head barely contacted the frontal airbag before sliding off the left side as the steering column moved 11 cm to the right, leaving the head vulnerable to contact with forward side structure. Measurements from the dummy indicated that injury to the lower leg was likely in a crash of this severity.
