CTS Crash Test

Notice how the passenger compartment and roof line are unaffected by this test, pretty good crash performance if you ask me:

From the video it seemed to hold together nicely. Did better than the Audi A4, BMW, Ford Focus, and some others on YouTube. And how about that F 150.....yikes.

Looks real good, actually. Some people complain about how newer cars are "cheap" and "crumple so easily", etc., etc.

What they fail to take into consideration is that the cars are designed to take the impact (e.g. instead of the vehicles' occupants).

I assume this was 40 MPH?

As a matter of fact, I <i>am</i> driving 70 MPH in a phone booth.

very nice, just to get a feel of the energy getting displaced in the crumple zones, look at how all the lines underneath the car make a wave as it comes to a stop.

Holds it passenger compartment form well for sure.

I just looked at this again, look how the steering wheel does not rise at all. Not surprising given the steering setup as compared to the old days..
