A video for all those who think that if a car is small it must be unsafe

About 9 min but worth watching. Go to about 5:10 to watch the crash.

Did you watch the video? While you are right that you have to consider G-force factors, the video clearly shows that the Renault is designed to dissipate energy as evenly as possible. Plus, it was 80 MPH! That's crazy fast for a crash.

As for size, a Modus is very small dude! Like really really small... several sizes down from the Volvo. I'm very impressed with the Modus... Renault really advertises their crash-test ratings, and I see now that it's justified.

That's not to say that the Volvo is bad... back in it's day it was a very safe care. Renault has shown that you don't need huge size to survive in a crash.
