Offset Crash is a very significant test carried out by manufacturers on their new vehicle before they can introduced that vehicle for people. This test allow manufacturer to make vehicle safer and convenient for the people in time of accident. This test was first performed back in the year 1973 by leading car manufacturers from German based that is Mercedes-Benz. In this particular test, two vehicles do not strike each other face to face to face, but instead they overlap each other side to side. In today’s time, this test is performed in close environment with solid and rigid block at one end and then vehicle is crashed into it with force. During the earlier time, this test was performed at the speed of 55 kmph with the rate of 40 percent over lap. But now, this test is even harder with the speed of 64 kmph with 40 percent over lap, where the driver and passenger in the vehicle should not suffer any severe damage. The overlap ratio can be ratio can be changed by the manufacturers as based on their requirement of testing. Carrying out this test of every vehicle of every manufacturer is very important before they can introduce to the market for use. The automobile safety association is very strict on this kind of crash test result as it will determine how safe the vehicle for the use of people in real life situations. The offset test is also counted more important than full frontal crash test, as instead of complete front of the car only part of the front of the car need to absorb the complete force of crash. This test is performed by various associations like ASEAN NCAP, ANCAP that is Australian New Car Assessment Program, EuroNCAP, and IIHS that is Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
