IIHS Frontal Offset Crash Test

About IIHS
Each vehicle’s frontal offset crashworthiness is based on performance in a 40 mph frontal offset crash test.  Ratings depend on how well the structure/safety cage protects the occupant compartment, the risk of injury measured for an average-sized male, and how well the restraint system controls occupant movement.
Rating Key:
G Good A Acceptable M Marginal P Poor
Injury measures
