Nice thorough post. I was wondering why the Euro NCAP crash test video I posted this afternoon disappeared.

I wonder why the side curtain airbags didnt deploy in the frontal crash test, you could see the dummy hit the A-pillar pretty hard. I think it would have helped with head injuries if they had deployed.

I noticed that the seat belts didn't seem to pre tension very well. In fact they seemed to reel out rather than pre grip. Any comments?

Not sure about "pedestrian protection" though.
