IIHS Passenger-Side Crash Tests

With the front collision tests in the IIHS, there are two sides that are going to be tested. One of them is the driver's side. The other side is the passenger side. The passenger-side test of the vehicle is pretty much the same as the drivers-side test. One key difference is the side of the vehicle that is impacted.

When doing a passenger side test, there are two dummies. There is one on the driver's side of the vehicle with the other being on the passenger's side. This is to simulate a realistic version of a crash sense the driver is very likely to be in the vehicle.

When doing both frontal tests, there are three things that are considered when it comes to the safety of the vehicle. These three factors that are considered are the Structure or safety cage, the injury measures, and the restraints or dummy movements.
