Frontal Offset Crash Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Frontal Offset* 15.09 pts (out of 16)
Head/Neck 4 pts
Chest 3.56 pts
Upper Legs 4 pts
Lower Legs 3.53 pts

The passenger compartment held its shape well in the offset crash test. The accelerator pedal moved rearwards by 39mm. The brake pedal moved downwards 3mm. The steering wheel hub moved 38mm forward, 37mm upward and 5mm sideways. The front ("A") pillar moved 4mm forwards. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash all doors could be opened with normal effort.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was stable. Side curtains deployed in this crash, providing extra protection in secondary impacts. Due to seat movement the curtain on the driver's side did not fully deploy. This did not happen in the subsequent pole test and no points were deducted. There were no knee contact marks. The passenger's head was cushioned by the airbag.

The side impact test normally used by ANCAP simulates a small car striking the driver's door of the vehicle under test. Experience shows that large vehicles like the Colorado can be expected to perform well in this test so ANCAP has decided to award a full score of 16 for these vehicles instead of conducting a crash test.

The vehicle scored the maximum two points in the pole side impact test.
