Risk Notes

High Risk of life-threatening injury in offset test and chest injury in side impact test.

Model History & Safety

The tested model of Proton Jumbuck was introduced in Australia during 2003. Proton Cars Australia has advised ANCAP that this model is being discontinued. The Jumbuck has minimal safety features. There are no top tether anchorages for child restraints so this vehicle is unsuitable for transporting young children.

Overall Evaluation

1 star. The Jumbuck scored 1 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment was severely deformed. Protection from head injury was poor for the driver and passenger. Driver leg protection was also poor. The vehicle scored 7.39 out of 16 in the side impact crash test.
There was a high risk of life-threatening chest injury for
the driver.

Frontal Offset Crash Test

Body region scores out of 4 points each: Head/neck zero pts, chest 2 pts, upper legs zero pts, lower legs zero pts.
The passenger compartment was severely deformed in the offset crash test. The brake pedal moved rearwards by 349 mm and downwards 9mm. The steering wheel hub moved 206 mm rearward, 66 mm upward and 45 mm sideways. The front ("A") pillar moved 312 mm rearwards. The driver's door lost structural integrity during the crash, exposing the driver to extra risk during secondary impacts. After the crash the driver’s door could be opened with high manual effort. The driver dummy legs had to be dismantled for extrication as they were trapped by the vehicle deformation.
The driver's head struck the steering wheel and top of the instrument panel and injury measurements indicated a high risk of serious head injury. Steering column and dash components were a potential source of injury for the driver's knees. There was no sign of a passenger head contact.

Side Impact Crash Test

Body region scores out of 4 points each: Head 4 pts, chest zero pts, abdomen 0.11 pts, pelvis 3.28 pts.
Injury measurements indicated a high risk of serious chest injury. Abdomen protection was weak.
