The brake pedal moved rearwards by 15mm and upwards 20mm. The steering wheel hub moved forwards 14mm, upwards 44mm and sideways 4mm. The front ("A") pillar moved 9mm rearwards. The width of the driver's doorway shortened by 10mm. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash all doors could be opened with normal effort. The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was stable. Dash components were a potential source of injury for the driver's knees. The passenger's head was cushioned by the airbag.

Side impact crash test

Body region scores out of 4 points each: Head 4pts, chest 4pts, abdomen 4pts, pelvis 4pts. This test simulates a fairly small car striking the driver's door of the vehicle under test. It is based on a regulation test but the regulation does not apply to vehicles with a high seat height like the Range Rover. Such vehicles can be expected to perform relatively well in this particular side impact test. The vehicle was eligible for an optional pole impact test, since it had head-protecting side airbags and scored four points for the head in the side impact test. The manufacturer decided to go ahead with the pole test and the vehicle earned a further two points.
