The IIHS test vehicles to rate their crashworthiness or, how well they protect occupants during an unexpected crash. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is one of the leading organizations for crash test research. Watch as the 2013 Dodge Dart undergoes a crash test – a dummy is used to demonstrate how well the Dart will protect it’s occupants during a crash and is used to show how external forces would lead to injury of passengers in a crash.
Before the crash test, the 2013 Dodge Dart is checked and documented about its pre-crash state. The vehicle then goes into the prepping area where the fluids are emptied. The purpose of supervising the pre-crash condition of the structure of the 2013 Dodge Dart is so that it can be analyzed after the effects of the crash.
Right before the crash test is conducted the 2013 Dart is put in a temperature controlled shed – grease and paint are put on the dummies head and knees so after they can be documented where the head has come in contact vs the airbag etc. The last step, the dummy is positioned in the 2013 Dart and the crash is then crashed on forceful impact at 40MPH.
After the crash test, an ideal situation is to be able to see the airbag, belts and safety cage are all still in tact. This result will show that there is a low risk of injury and the 2013 Dodge Dart’s structure has held up well protecting its passengers.
The focus of the IIHS as well as Dodge is to protect occupants during accidents. With improving technology a focus has also been put on vehicles that can help occupants avoid a crash all together. Dodge has kept their efforts into keeping their vehicles safe – the 2013 Dodge Dart was named an IIHS Top Safety Pick for its ability to protect occupants as shown in the vehicle.
