I wouldn't either, but it actually gets good crash test reviews, this just released:Saw my first one in the US on the Freeway yesterday. Hate to get into a highspeed accident in that puppy.
^^^ Oh [email protected] But look how strong the front clam is holding up a crown vic like that!I'm really surprised that so many people question the safety of the Smart but drive a Lotus without batting a lash... You are aware that the average sedan could drive right up the front of the Elise and if you were to rear and nearly any car you would slide completely under it. See below...
^^^ That's a very real concern, the car seems to come away okay, but dummies are not people (most of the time ).Quite impressive. These videos and tests really show how crumple zones do so well in other cars. I would think one would not survive those impacts just due to decelleration G forces alone.
The car is a quite strong metal box!
