It's amazing how these new cars can take a serious whack and driver safety is not that comprimised compared to what would have happened to vehicles produced just a few years ago.

Recently they have come up with the idea of cars crunching on impact.

Could you imagine hitting a car that was so solid only your body was the thing moving and not the vehicle? Its crazy to think that was considered safe!

Things sure have come a long way. We arent in flying cars yet but these ones coming out now sure are raising the safety bar.

Recently they have come up with the idea of cars crunching on impact.

The ideology is that the car will crumple as it absorbs the energy rather than you absorbing the energy. Some of today's crashes look twisted and fatel, but it's just the car crushing in upon itself and it's crumple zones.

So the Spark really passes the safety test Alyse?

... with 4 stars, just 1 point minus to make' it 5 stars, when they first did the crashing test in Europe the car was missing the traction control and stability control, now with all this electronic help it will pas with 5 stars no doubt.

Nice setup you have there. By the way, how's the performance of the Bilstein shocks? Would like to know your feedback when you installed it on your spark.
