Frontal Offset Crash Test Results

Frontal Offset Test Image
Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Frontal Offset* 4.55 pts (out of 8)
Head/Neck 2.48 pts
Chest 1.3 pts
Upper Legs 2 pts
Lower Legs 3.33 pts

The passenger compartment of the Suzuki Jimny lost structural intregrity in the frontal offset test, with excessive displacement of the pedals and steering wheel. There was insufficient pressure in the frontal airbag allowing the driver’s head to ‘bottom out’ and contact the steering wheel through the airbag. The driver head score was penalised, and protection was rated as MARGINAL. Deformation of the door frame resulted in penalties to the driver’s chest score, and protection was rated WEAK. Protection of the passenger’s chest was rated ADEQUATE. Structures in the instrument panel and dashboard were a potential source of additional risk of injury to occupants and protection of both the driver and passenger knees was rated MARGINAL. Protection of the driver’s feet was rated ADEQUATE based on rearward pedal movement.

Whiplash Protection Crash Test Image

Child Protection Test

In the frontal offset test, protection of the neck of both the 6 year and 10 year dummies was ADEQUATE, while the protection offered to all other critical body regions was GOOD.

In the side impact test, protection of all critical body areas was GOOD for both child dummies, and maximum points were scored.

The Suzuki Jimny is fitted with lower ISOFix anchorages and top tether anchorages on the rear outboard seats.

Installation of typical child restraints available in Australia and New Zealand showed that all of the selected child restraints could be accommodated in each of the rear seating positions and full points were scored for this assessment.

Pedestrian Summary

The bonnet of the Suzuki Jimny provided GOOD or ADEQUATE protection to the head of a struck pedestrian over most of its surface, with some POOR results recorded along the front of the bonnet and on the stiff windscreen pillars. The bumper scored maximum points for its protection of pedestrians’ legs, with GOOD results at all test locations. Protection of the pelvis was mixed, with areas of GOOD and POOR performance.

The autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system is capable of detecting and reacting to pedestrians. The system does not react to cyclists and does not function in low light.

The AEB system offered POOR to ADEQUATE performance in tests of its effectiveness in pedestrian daylight test scenarios, with overall performance rated WEAK.
