If you own a car or have been keen to observe the car dashboard, it is made of very soft plastic. Actually, it is is just covered by a thin layer of plastic material. Why do you think it has been manufactured that way?
Such dashboards are said to be padded and they play a significant role when it comes to the safety of the passengers. They help to decrease the time of contact and therefore lower the chances of injury in case of an accident. They act as shock absorbers reducing the force of impact.
Another reason is because of the safety air bags in the car. On the passenger and driver section there are safety air bags that pop out during a strong impact. The soft dashboard ensures that the airbags easily pop out protecting those in the car.
