Safer than expected Fortwo performs like cars in crash tests

how safe is the Smart Fortwo? in what automaker Mercedes-Benz the tridion safety cell, the Fortwo manages to prove to be safer than expected for a small car. With a price well below the Smart Fortwo activates the zone of the other vehicle in a helping to distribute the force Steering clear of tractor remains a good idea.

Daimler The Smart seems like it wouldn’t well in an accident, but it has managed to and American car safety standards.

Chances are you’ve seen impossibly tiny car roaming urban streets in the region. If you are the average driver who sees your thoughts are almost drawn to how the Smart Fortwo fare in an accident with larger than a scooter.

pondering would only be You need never have physics, let alone passed the to inherently understand that a small car collides with a one, the smaller vehicle is to take the worst of the forces In standard European testing of that are similarly sized to the or fractionally larger, the smashing of the cars into metallic is pretty much the rule, the being the exception.

ADAC, a German automobile not unlike the AAA here, wanted to see if the was capable of taking a larger The usual EuroNCAP crash is a simulated frontal collision a vehicle of the same weight. had four smaller car makes into a 50 percent offset weighted to be the equivalent of a lower-end car.

Again, the Smart was the microcar that held up. conclusions were that the crumple zone designs of the competitors don’t afford space to be effective. The Smart its occupants safe using a strategy—extreme structural rigidity with energy dissipating panels and eight airbags protect from every

The innovative construction of the Smart is a feather in the cap of the builder, Mercedes-Benz. The set itself a mission to exceed all of the and American Car safety standards and a small car that could a huge impact without injury to the occupants. These internal standards mean the Fortwo punches above its in a collision with most vehicles, within reason.

Daimler The driver and passenger in the Fortwo are protected by what calls the tridion safety

The principle safety system is a tensile steel safety M-B calls the tridion safety It protects its occupants like a shell around the nut inside. The cell’s longitudinal and transverse actually activates the crumple design of the other vehicle in the accident to distribute the impact evenly over the little body. The entire rear engine bay and the front suspension are to act as the car’s own crumple zones. a good thing most models cost well $20,000 because they are to take the kill shot for you in a collision.

More than 1.4 million Fortwo cars have to the roads world wide 1998. If they were dangerous, the cry for its removal from the would have been by now.

If your driving fits smartly with the pun intended, you can drive one in total around your town or as it will easily survive moderate impacts with its cell intact. That only daredevils will dance a Fortwo with the trailer rigs on the turnpike.
