2016 Buick Envision Crash Test – Video
The driver space was maintained well, with maximum intrusion of the lower interior of 12 cm at the lower hinge pillar. Upper interior intrusion measured 7 cm at the hinge pillar and instrument panel.
Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity, including head injury risk from the head contacting steering wheel rim.
Restraints and dummy kinematics
The dummy’s head barely contacted the frontal airbag before sliding off the left side, leaving the head vulnerable to contact with forward structure. Additionally, the seat belt allowed excessive forward excursion of the dummy’s head and torso to the extent the head hit the steering wheel rim. The side curtain airbag deployed and has sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with side structure and outside objects.
