Odd that the crash test was never posted on this forum. Or at least not that I could find.
Here it is for anyone interested.


I assume that red noodle thrown at the bumper is supposed to be a human. Interesting to see the bumper flex and then bounce back.

Pedestrian protection does get tested too and the sweet spot is the middle of your bumper. Not saying you should go out and start hitting people but the safest place to do so is in the middle.
Here's the results if you want to see the actual numbers.

It's odd that the best place to hit them is the center of the bumper because that seems like the place you'd be least likely to hit them. I assume you'd try to turn and avoid them, which would lead to you hitting with the sides of the bumper almost everytime.

You're unlucky to get hit by a car, but you'd be lucky to be hit by this particular Volvo vehicle because pedestrian air bags are really not common whatsoever.

Glad that the Qashqai got 5 stars though. I wouldn't completely disregard a vehicle if it didn't have a 5 star rating, but at this point it seems like you shouldn't really be putting a vehicle into production without it living up to the highest measures of safety.

Depends on what they failed in to get that 4 star. Some may not have Safety Assist as standard so they may lose points there while scoring very well in the other categories. I would however, think twice about a car with a poor score in Adult or Child Occupant safety.

Well it's part of a whole shift in the industry. While every car may not have it yet, vehicles are being designed with pedestrian safety in mind even if that means no air bags.
