Look how much safer small cars have become in 20 years

By Faiming_low on 05 Feb 2017

Attached Image To showcase how far the industry has come in terms of safety, Euro NCAP has put together a demonstration featuring two small family cars built 20 years apart and crashing them.

The two cars in questions are the 1997 Rover 100 and the current Honda Jazz. While the Honda Jazz is a five-star car in Euro NCAP's books, the Rover 100 received only one star out of the four available stars back then. Other cars like the Ford Fiesta and VW Polo managed three stars.

Euro NCAP have been crash-testing cars since 1997 and they have published over 630 safety ratings, crash-tested around 1,800 vehicles and spent over €160 million with hopes of making the automotive industry safer.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

after 20years we still got so many road deaths from accidents

 

strange that we can build space-crafts that can withstand the harshest of elements but we cant find a solution to build safer cars that do not need to result in death during an accident.

 

we spend billions or even trillions of dollars perfecting vehicles of destruction in preparation or for war.

 

strange how we value human lives.
