The passenger compartment of the VW ID. Buzz remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of both the driver and passenger. VW demonstrated that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sitting in different position. Protection was good for all critical body areas of the passenger dummy. Analysis of the deceleration of the impact trolley during the test, and analysis of the deformable barrier after the test, revealed that the car would be a moderately benign partner in a frontal collision. In the full-width rigid barrier test, chest protection was rated as marginal for the rear passenger, based on dummy readings of compression but, protection of all critical body areas was good for both the driver and rear passenger. In both the side barrier test and the more severe side pole impact, dummy readings indicated good protection of all critical body areas. However, in the pole test, the curtain airbag got trapped on the interior trim and did not fully deploy as intended, so a penalty was applied to the head score in both side impacts. Control of excursion (the extent to which a body is thrown to the other side of the vehicle when it is hit from the far side) was adequate. The ID. Buzz has a counter-measure to mitigate against occupant to occupant injuries in such impacts. The system performed well in Euro NCAP’s tests, with good protection of the occupants’ heads. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric analysis of the rear seats also indicated good whiplash protection. The ID. Buzz has an advanced eCall system which alerts the emergency services in the event of a crash and a ‘multi-collision braking’ system applies the brakes to prevent secondary collisions.
In both the frontal offset and side barrier tests, good protection was provided to all critical body areas for both child dummies, and the ID. Buzz scored maximum points in this part of the assessment. The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. All of the child restraint types for which the VW ID. Buzz is designed could be properly installed and accommodated in the car.
