Archives: Fiat Croma

The new Fiat Croma has just been awarded the maximum five-star rating in the European New Car Assessment Program (Euro NCAP) crash safety tests. This important judgement was recently also awarded to the new Grande Punto, thus underlining the attention that Fiat Auto pays to every aspect of the protection of drivers and passengers.

On the new Fiat Croma, this attention has produced excellent results. To achieve them, Fiat Auto's designers took into consideration every possible type of accident: head-on and side-on collisions, overturning, rear collisions and fire. They also analysed the different speeds at which impacts occur, the different types of obstacle, and the protection of occupants with very different physical features.

This added up to some 18,000 hours of calculations, 120 crash tests, 100 crash simulations on HyGe sleds, 200 tests on components and subsystems, 10 new types of performance specifications and test procedures, and eight co-design suppliers of specific structures for passive safety, two of which were involved exclusively in the planning and development of safety systems.
