FRONTAL OFFSET TEST
OVERALL EVALUATION: Good
Structure/safety cage Injury measures Restraints/dummy kinematics
Head/neck Chest Leg/foot, left Leg/foot, right
Good Good Good Good Marginal Good
Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.
The Mitsubishi Galant was redesigned for the 2004 model year.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. During rebound, the dummy’s head hit the B-pillar.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the head, neck, chest, and left leg indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity. Forces on the right tibia indicate that injuries to the lower leg would be possible. The dummy’s right knee contacted a metal reinforcement under the steering column, which gashed the vinyl ‘skin.’ Head acceleration from the B-pillar hit was low.
