Crash Test 2001 - 2006 Mitsubishi Pajero / Montero IIHS
FRONTAL OFFSET TEST
OVERALL EVALUATION: Acceptable
Structure/safety cage Injury measures Restraints/dummy kinematics
Head/neck Chest Leg/foot, left Leg/foot, right
Good Acceptable Good Marginal Good Acceptable
Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.
The Mitsubishi Montero was redesigned for the 2001 model year and discontinued after the 2006 model year.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was reasonably well controlled. During rebound, the dummy's head hit the B-pillar. There was far too much upward movement of the steering wheel.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the neck and chest indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity. Forces on the left knee and left tibia indicate that injuries to the knee and lower leg would be possible. A high head acceleration occurred when the dummy's head hit the steering wheel through the airbag, indicating that injuries to the head would be possible. Head acceleration from the B-pillar hit was low.

In response to video comments: This is not a rigged setup. There are no chains holding back the competitors cars. This was also shown live to an audience for training purposes. Sorry to bust everyones doubts.

Lots of Wheel Lifting Action from the Pajero and some great examples of the traction control in action. You could almost do without a locker when it works like this.
This video features Nathan driving my Pajero whilst on a 4WD Drive day with Mannell Motors. I was filming a series of stories for "4wdTV" and "Your 4x4" so I needed a driver for the day. Seems like he did a pretty good job too. Many thanks to Jimmy from Mannel Motors for a great day and to Nick Mannell for guiding Nathan through some quite difficult terrain.
