NHTSA Crash Tests: Frontal and Side

Side impact with pole:

I especially like that the window wipers are tested to make sure they work after the side impact. Whimsical.

Edit: Nevermind, looks like the wipers came on from the impact. Not as whimsical. Really digging the matte white interior, though.

*makes mental note to reference this thread when someone complains about poor visibility due to the A-pillar.*

Not that the visibility complaints are not valid, but the tradeoff is reasonable.
It depends on how many accidents reduced visibility causes.

The safest vehicle is the one that doesn't hit things. A Yugo that doesn't crash is safer than a Volvo that does.
I acknowledged there is a tradeoff, but now that I'm used to the blindspot, I think that tradeoff is reasonable.
