Especially when you have 507bhp under the hoodvirividox said:it looks sweet but i guess if im paying that much id like to have something with a higher crash rating
not as bad as that death trap Chrysler Voyager that folded up like foil when they tested it.... I don't think that even scrapped 1 Star.takao said:only 3 stars ? ... thats about a jeep liberty or a frickin polo......what a shame
Didn't the Chrysler Voyager also test well in the U.S. as well? yet was one of the most unsafe cars ever tested in the Euro NCAP tests?Chmeeee said:Well it tested fine in the US, so maybe we should wait until they iron out those "inconsistencies" in their test.
Could it be possible that the US standards are lower than the European one?iGAV said:Didn't the Chrysler Voyager also test well in the U.S. as well? yet was one of the most unsafe cars ever tested in the Euro NCAP tests?
Looking forward to seeing the revised results.... otherwise BMW are really in the sh*t!
Er, where would one find this video?Abstract said:Yes, but they also look back at the videos at whether the cage collapses, or the dashboard collapses onto the legs, or whether the engine compresses and crushes your legs, etc. If the 5 series can't physically take a hit, it's useless.
I thought that was more to do with type approval because of emission laws that strangle U.S. cars of which certain european cars couldn't meet without extensive re-engineering or specific state legislations that would make it prohibitly expensive for the car company to implement.iMeowbot said:There are lots of cars considered fine in Europe that aren't allowed on the roads here.
I poorly worded my reply... I meant for retooling for safety features as well.iMeowbot said:It's not just emissions, crashes too.
The problem is that the IIHS tests can be "won" by engineering, and have little value in the real world crashes. Not sure about the European standards.Chmeeee said:Well it tested fine in the US, so maybe we should wait until they iron out those "inconsistencies" in their test.
