2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia vs 2017 BMW 3 series Crash Test – Video

2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia vs 2017 BMW 3 series Crash Test – Video

The Alfa Romeo Giulia was introduced in the 2017 model year. Beginning with 2017 models built after May 2017, the front-end structure was modified and the door hinge pillar and sill were reinforced to improve occupant protection in small overlap and moderate overlap frontal crashes. (Information about when a specific vehicle was manufactured is on the certification label typically affixed to the car on the driver door or adjacent B-pillar.)

Structure
The driver space was maintained well, with maximum intrusion of the lower interior of 13 cm at the footrest and 12 cm at the brake pedal. Upper interior intrusion measured 4-5 cm at the upper hinge pillar and instrument panel.

Injury measures
Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

Restraints and 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 has sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with side structure and outside objects. The side torso airbag also deployed.

The BMW 3 series sedan was redesigned for the 2012 model year. For the 2016 model year, a front suspension change was made to better control wheel movement during small overlap frontal crashes. The change, however, wasn’t enough to improve the car’s performance in the small overlap test.

Beginning with 2017 models built after November 2016, BMW made further changes to the suspension and modified the adjoining structure. Wheel movement was much better controlled and the car’s performance in the small overlap test was greatly improved. (Information about when a specific vehicle was manufactured is on the certification label typically affixed to the car on the driver door or adjacent B-pillar.)

Structure
The driver space was maintained well, with maximum intrusion of the lower interior of 16 cm at the footrest. Upper interior intrusion measured 3 cm at the upper hinge pillar and instrument panel.

Injury measures
Measures from the dummy indicate that injuries to the right lower leg would be possible in a crash of this severity. The risk of significant injuries to other body regions is low.
