Jeep Liberty (KK) crash test report

The Libby kicked A$$ in all the test. whopped the honda like the green bay packers. The compass performed poorly. Chrysler had no vehicles in the "worst" section

IIHS Frontal Offset Crash Test About IIHS Each vehicle’s frontal offset crashworthiness is based on performance in a 40 mph frontal offset crash test. Ratings depend on how well the structure/safety cage protects the occupant compartment, the risk of injury measured for an average-sized male, and how well the restraint system controls occupant movement.

The dummy's position in relation to the steering wheel and instrument panel after the crash test indicates that the driver's survival space was maintained well.

Smeared greasepaint indicates where the dummy's head brushed the dislodged headliner above the side curtain airbag during rebound. The head also contacted the airbag and head restraint.

Forces on the knee and lower left leg were high enough to indicate the possibility of injuries.
