Clearly ACC stop & go and safety features were disabled first.

Looks like virtually zero deformation to passenger cell.

Wondering why passenger side side curtain didn't deploy. Did they disable it to be able to see inside the car from the side cameras?

This is a different company doing the testing. The offset test is the IIHS, this is safercar.gov

Thanks for the video. It was the safety feature that got me into an X5 after my sister's husband lost his life in an SUV rollover.

That's where Bmw and Mercedes did poorly previously and Acura swept the floor with it.

I'm curious as to how these f chassis do too

LOL. It's kind of like closing up shop.

But it is interesting that in a frontal collision only the driver curtain deployed. Wonder if it is because the passenger airbag is so much bigger. Anyone know?

Lol, why are they using luxury line cars with active headlights? Would expect no-line base models for this stuff.

Anyway, a lady in our town wrecked her Luxury line 2014 right after she bought it. We happened to run into her and strike up a convo. She said it came apart on her, so I mentioned that's kind of the point of crumple zones, to absorb the impact and protect you. I guess she expected a tank, lol.
