When the IIHS tests the front of the vehicle in crashes, among there are factors that are looked at when giving the vehicle its safety rating. These are considered the most important factors because they are the ones that have the most impact on the live of the driver and passengers.

One major factor is the safety cage or the structure. The structure is what protects the occupant from injury. This is also looked at with consideration to the crush zone because the safety cage is to be protected by the crush zone so that the occupant can be safe from harm.

Another factor for the vehicle's safety from the front is the injury. The dummies that are used have sensors that determine the likelihood that the occupant is going to sustain injuries from the type of crash that happens in the vehicle. The head, chest, neck, and other parts of the dummy are considered.
