The air bags deployment speed looks great. I just wonder, what happens to your legs on head on collisions like those?
The Audi Q3 received good ratings in the moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests.According to IIHS, the crossover held up well in the small overlap test, with maximum intrusion of four inches at the lower door-hinge pillar. In addition, the driver dummy’s movement was well-controlled in the impact with the head hitting the front airbag and remaining in place until rebound. Measurements taken from the dummy indicated a low risk of injuries in a crash of this severity.
Depends on the impact and what gets pushed back towards you in the footwell area. One thing you'll want to look into are crush points for where energy is directed.The air bags deployment speed looks great. I just wonder, what happens to your legs on head on collisions like those?
Yup - same superstructure, the 2015 just didn't get into the IIHS queue in time ...Those videos are heartbreaking but go Audi! Would it be safe to presume the 2015 would have similar results?
I assume that is one of the things that IIHS tests most. I mean a car isn't very safe if the driver's legs are crushed in a crash.Took a second look at the videos and it seems like the impact damage doesn't seems to reach as far in as where your legs are located. It's one of my biggest fears as my brother was hit in a head on collision with a similar angle.
Another thing to consider is all that mass from your legs to the front of the vehicle and the energy it can absorb which is you think about it... is a lot.I assume that is one of the things that IIHS tests most. I mean a car isn't very safe if the driver's legs are crushed in a crash.
