• Photo from the Institute's 40 mph frontal offset offset crash of the Yaris into a deformable barrier: 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 well. The Yaris earned a GOOD rating in this test. (Tested vehicle: 2007 Toyota Yaris)

  • Camry pre-crash photo
  • Yaris pre-crash photo
  • The Camry earned an ACCEPTABLE rating in this test; the Yaris earned a POOR rating.
  • Photo of the Yaris from the Institute's 40 mph frontal offset crash with the Camry: There was a lot of intrusion into the occupant compartment. The driver's seat tipped forward, and the steering wheel moved excessively. The head injury measure on the dummy rated poor, and there was extensive force on the neck and right leg plus a deep gash at the right knee.
  • Accord pre-crash photo
  • Fit pre-crash photo
  • The Accord earned a GOOD rating in this test; the Fit earned a POOR rating.
  • Photo of the Fit from the Institute's 40 mph frontal offset crash with the Accord: There was a lot of intrusion into the occupant compartment, which compromised the survival space around the driver dummy. Measures recorded on the dummy indicate that the risk of serious injury would be high in a similar real-world collision.
  • C class pre-crash photo
  • Smart Fortwo pre-crash photo
  • The C class earned a GOOD rating in this test; the Smart earned a POOR rating.
  • Photo of the Smart from the Institute's 40 mph frontal offset crash with the C class: The space around the driver collapsed during the crash. Multiple injuries, including to the head, would be likely for a real-world driver of a Smart in a similar collision.
