2019 Suzuki Jimny, VW Touareg, Audi A6 Crash Test & Rating – Video

2019 Suzuki Jimny, VW Touareg, Audi A6 Crash Test & Rating – Video

In the frontal offset test, there was insufficient pressure in the driver’s airbag to prevent it from ‘bottoming out’, allowing the head to contact the steering wheel. The score for the head was penalised for the behaviour of the airbag and the displacement of the steering wheel, and protection for this part of the body was rated as marginal. The passenger compartment was extensively deformed in the offset test, especially around the door-frame and the score for the driver’s chest was penalised for this unstable collapse. Combined with marginal dummy readings, protection for this body area was rated as weak. Although dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of both driver and passenger, structures in the instrument panel and dashboard were thought to pose a risk of injury to occupants of different sizes, and protection was rated as marginal. In the full-width, rigid-barrier impact protection of the head of the rear passenger
dummy was rated as weak, based on dummy readings during the test and protection of the chest of both driver and rear passenger was marginal. Tests on the front seats and head restraints showed marginal protection against whiplash injury in a rear impact. A geometric assessment of the rear seats indicated good protection. The standard-fit autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system performed well in tests of its functionality at the low speeds, typical of city driving, at which many whiplash injuries are caused. However, the Jimny did not qualify for these points as Euro NCAP requires good head restraint performance as a pre-requisite for AEB points.

In the frontal offset test, protection of all critical body areas was good except for the necks of both dummies, protection of which was rated as adequate. In the side barrier test, protection of both dummies was good for all critical parts of the body. The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. All of the restraint types for which the Jimny is designed could be properly installed and accommodated.

The bonnet provided predominantly good or adequate protection to the head of a struck pedestrian, with poor results recorded at the front of the bonnet and on the stiff windscreen pillars. The bumper provided good protection to pedestrians’ legs but protection of the pelvis was mixed. The AEB system showed weak performance in tests of its pedestrian avoidance in daylight and does not operate in low light. The system cannot react to faster-moving road-users like cyclists.

The passenger compartment of the A6 remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings showed good protection for the knees and femurs of both the driver and passenger. Audi showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sitting in different positions. In the full-width rigid barrier test, seatbelt pre-tensioners and load-limiters in the front and rear seats ensured adequate protection for the chest. Protection of other critical body areas was good. In the side barrier test, protection of all critical body areas was good. In the more severe side pole impact, protection of the chest was rated as marginal, based on dummy readings of lateral rib compression. Protection of other parts of the body was good. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric assessment of the rear seats also
indicated good whiplash protection. The autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system performed well in tests of its functionality at the low speeds, typical of city driving, at which many whiplash injuries are caused.

In the frontal offset test, protection of all critical body areas was good apart from the neck of the 10-year child, for which dummy readings of neck forces indicated marginal protection. In the side barrier test, protection of all critical parts of the body was good. The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. All of the restraint types for which the A6 is designed could be properly installed and accommodated in the car.

The A6 has a ‘pop-up’ bonnet, for additional pedestrian protection. Sensors detect when a pedestrian has been hit and actuators lift the bonnet to provide greater clearance to the hard structures in the engine compartment. Audi showed that the system deployed robustly for different pedestrian statures and over a range of speed so the car was tested with the bonnet in the raised position. Good or adequate results were recorded at almost all test locations. The bumper scored maximum points for its protection of pedestrian legs, with good results recorded at all test locations. Protection of the pelvis was mixed. The AEB system can detect vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists. In tests of this functionality, the system performed well, with collisions avoided or mitigated in almost all tests.

The AEB system performed well in tests of its functionality at the highway speeds. The standard-fit speed assistance system consists of a driver-set speed limiter. A more advanced system is available as an option, not included in this assessment, which recognises the local speed limit and presents the information to the driver. A seatbelt reminder is standard for front and rear seats. The lane support system helps the driver to keep the car from drifting out of lane but is also able, in some circumstances, to intervene in emergency situations.

The passenger compartment of the Touareg remained stable in the front offset test. Dummy readings showed good protection of the
knees and femurs of both the driver and passenger. VW showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of
different sizes and to those sitting in different positions. Protection of the chest of the driver dummy was rated as marginal, based on
dummy readings of compression during the test. Chest compression of both the driver and passenger dummy also led to a marginal rating for protection of this body area in the full-width rigid barrier test, all other areas being well or adequately protected. In the side barrier test, the Touareg scored maximum points with good protection of all body areas. In the more severe side pole test, protection of the chest was rated as marginal, based on dummy readings of rib deflection. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection of the neck against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric assessment of the rear seats also indicated good whiplash protection. The autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system performed well in tests of its functionality at the low speeds,
typical of city driving, at which many whiplash injuries are caused.

In the frontal offset test, all critical body areas were well or adequately protected. In the side barrier impact, all body areas were well protected. The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. All of the child restraints for which the Touareg is designed could be properly installed and accommodated.
