After the recent news of the Jeep Wrangler scoring 1 star in the crash test rating and the Fiat Panda scoring an impressive 0 stars, I had a look through some of the worst crash tests in history by today's standard, they'd be well into the negative scores.
These cars make the Fiat Panda look like an actual tank. Here are the 10 worst crash test videos:
1) 1990 Ford Sierra
Oh my days. Just wait until the 9km test.
2) Alfa Romeo 156
This one was painful to watch. Alfas should never be crash tested.
3) Pontiac Trans Sport
I'd prefer to crash in a crisp packet.
4) 1997 Citroën Saxo
The ultimate boy racer's car in the late '90s makes this potentially the most dangerous car in history.
5) Fiat Seicento
More crumble than my mum's Apple Crumble and custard.
6) 1997 Mercedes C-Class
Yes, don't scratch your eyes. That is a Mercedes.
7) Rover 100
This crash test is infamous. You'd be safer if you wore a thick jumper instead of be in a Rover 100.
8) VW Santana
Here's where things get a bit ridiculous. The driver would have ended up in the boot!
9) VW T3
I mean… there is literally nothing left of the cabin. That is just ridiculous.
10) Holden Commodore
This is by far the worst. It is actually impressive how badly the Commodore does. You have more chance of surviving if you just leapt away from the car.
