When you think about how safe cars were back in the late 90s come pared to their predecessors, it was a pretty massive improvement. Crumple zones were first starting to be implemented, side curtain air bags were becoming integrated into higher end commuter cars, and crashes that ended in death a decade earlier saw more people surviving.

So how far has is come since then? In reality, a lot.

ANCAP, Australia and New Zealand's safety agency decided to crash test two Toyota Carollas. One from 1998 and one from 2017. The difference is pretty shocking.
