Test details: The Suzuki Grand Vitara XL-7 was introduced in the 2001 model year. Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was reasonably well controlled. The driver's seat tipped toward the B-pillar. During rebound, the dummy's head hit the B-pillar. Injury measures — Measures taken from the head, neck, and chest indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity.
