Test details:

The Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ were introduced in the 2013 model year.

Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. The driver side curtain airbag deployed during the crash. After the dummy moved forward into the frontal airbag, its head contacted the side curtain airbag.

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

model year and trim level only; see “Tested vehicle  specifications” below

Left to right:

  • Action shot taken during the frontal offset crash test.
  • The dummy’s position in relation to the steering wheel and instrument panel after the crash test indicates that the driver’s survival space was maintained very well.
  • Smeared greasepaint shows where the driver dummy’s head was protected from hitting hard structures during rebound by the side curtain airbag.
  • Intrusion into the driver’s space was minimal, and all leg and foot injury measures were low.
