Sitting in these cars, you risk life

Car safety is one of the main requirements we place on an iron horse. Today, an objective indicator of the degree of reliability of the machine are the results of crash tests. In our article, we will tell you which models of cars got “unsuccessful” after their passage.

Cars that did not pass the crash test

About what a crash test is, today, probably, only a child does not know. This test, simulating an emergency, helps to identify risks that threaten the driver and passengers in frontal and side collisions, identify the "weak" places of the car and objectively assess the safety of the car.

A dozen cars whose crash test results were unsatisfactory, looks like this.

Mitsubishi mirage

The Japanese concern, which decided to release a budget compact car, eventually saved not only on fuel consumption, but also on components that ensure the reliability of the car.A frontal impact at a speed of 65 km turns the “Mirage” hood into a mash of plastic and metal, and the driver’s airbags, as can be seen in the video, are more likely to protect the steering wheel, and not the person who sits behind it.

Hyundai solaris

In the European and Ukrainian markets, this model is known as the Hyundai Accent. Due to its cheapness in Russia, Solaris has become one of the most purchased cars of recent years. But in Europe, the popularity of this Korean is extremely low, and the reason for this is the low safety cars. According to experts, the chances of surviving in such a car during an accident are minimal.

Mazda 5

Did not pass the test for reliability and Mazda 5. It is difficult to say why the Japanese designers, who improved the safety system of the 3rd and 6th models, turned their attention to the 5th, but the fact is obvious: the praised Japanese quality in this case failed. Kompaktven when the frontal impact behaves no better than the "Hyundai", much inferior to him in price. Although it should be noted: according to the results of a side impact, the experts gave Mazda a high rating.

Lincoln mks

The luxury brand, set to update its premium car range, recently introduced the MKS sedan to the public.In contrast to the high quality of materials and technical characteristics, the safety of the car causes serious complaints. For a frontal collision with a partial overlap, this car received a low rating. Although experts have no complaints about the security system of other Lincoln models.

Jeep wrangler

Chrysler engineers, creating a Jeep Wrangler, set a goal to make an SUV, easily overcomes any off-road and is characterized by simplicity of design. As a result, we had to partially sacrifice passenger safety. The jeep withstands a frontal impact with dignity, but the side door crushes the removable doors of an SUV and inflicts injuries to people inside the cabin incompatible with life.

Mazda CX-9

Since its launch, this crossover has undergone more than one improvement, which, however, has not affected the security system. The crash test was a failure for him, because according to his results the Mazda CX-9 was named the most dangerous mid-size SUV. In 2017, the updated model of the Japanese concern will see the light, which, according to the manufacturer, will be radically different from its predecessors in terms of safety.

Nissan quest

Stylish and comfortable minivan showed low results on the crash test. Moreover, according to the test organizers, this was one of the most disastrous trials in recent years. During a frontal impact, the dummy replacing the driver was squeezed between the steering wheel and the floor, and it was necessary to remove it from there using scrap.

Chevrolet aveo

This offspring of the American car industry poses the greatest danger to rear row passengers. It was this part of the subcompact that proved to be the most vulnerable, although the protection of people sitting in front also proved to be very mediocre.

Kia rio

The frontal collision of a Korean sedan with an obstacle leaves little chance for the driver to remain unharmed. Experts rated the safety of cars as the maximum permissible, noting that the children in the cabin, the chances of survival is much less than in adults.

Vases

Alas, the Russian car industry can not boast of any new design solutions, or design finds, or build quality, or the level of auto protection. The results of crash tests speak for themselves:

About the most dangerous cars of the past years, find out from the video:

Which cars have a higher risk of an accident?

What factors, independent of the driver, increase the likelihood of an emergency?

The size

Brisk subcompacts are more likely to crash than elegant sedans and up-and-coming SUVs. The short wheelbase of small cars makes them less stable, so they often turn over. Small weight in terms of security is also a disadvantage: to push off a road and turn over a massive jeep is much more difficult than a miniature “Mikru” or “Matiz”.

Matiz

Colour

Cars of dark and faded colors almost merge with the color of asphalt and because of this they get into accidents. Therefore, at risk are the owners of black, gray and silver cars. The bright "color" of the iron horse makes one unwittingly draw attention to oneself and be on the lookout, and therefore the percentage of accidents involving cars painted in red, yellow and orange is much lower.

Red Mazda 3

Travel frequency

Oddly enough, but the frequency of travel also affects the safety of the car. After all, each exit increases the wear of the machine, reducing its service life.
