Chevrolet Cobalt 2-door 2005-09 models results also apply to: 2007-09 Pontiac G5FRONTAL OFFSET TEST OVERALL EVALUATION: Good Structure/safety cage Injury measures Restraints/dummy kinematics Head/neck Chest Leg/foot, left Leg/foot, right Acceptable Good Good Good Acceptable Good Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight. Test details: The Chevrolet Cobalt was introduced in the 2005 model year, and the Pontiac G5 (available only as a 2-door) was introduced in the 2007 model year. Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. During rebound, the dummy's head hit the roof rail after first contacting the head restraint. Injury measures — Measures taken from the head, neck, and chest indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity. Forces on the right tibia indicate that injuries to the lower leg would be possible. Head acceleration from the roof rail hit was negligible.
