The crashworthiness of the minivan
When evaluating the Chrysler Voyager, the NHTSA tested its crashworthiness for overall side pole impact, side barrier impact, rear passenger side barrier impact, driver side barrier impact, rear and front seat combined barrier and pole side impact, overall frontal impact, front driver-side impact, and front passenger-side impact.
The minivan performed well in these tests, in part, because of its incorporation of steel shaping technologies. For instance, the minivan utilized hydroforming to inject steel tubes with fluid at extreme pressures. As a result, the minivan now has stiffer and stronger load beams than their welded counterparts.
Tailor-welded blanks also comprise the door ring of the Voyager to better maintain the minivan’s structural integrity in the event of specific crashes. In total, 72 percent of the minivan’s body structure is made of high-strength steel. Advanced High-strength steel in the front rails and cradle help prevent crash energy from going towards the passenger compartment.
There are also a number of available safety systems in the Voyager, which help protect you and your passengers. For example, the Blind-spot Monitoring system can warn you if there’s a vehicle in your blind spot.
When you reverse, ParkSense rear park assist with stop can detect objects that are behind the minivan. The Rear Cross Path detection system also comes to your aid when backing up.
