ISO 9816:2006 specifies open-loop test methods to determine the reactions of a vehicle in a turn to a sudden drop in motive power resulting from release of the accelerator pedal. It applies to passenger cars as defined in ISO 3833.

The open-loop manoeuvre specified in this test method is not representative of real driving conditions, but is useful to obtain measures of a vehicle's power-off behaviour resulting from specific types of control inputs under closely controlled test conditions.
