      @Dom I can only agree with you. The problem is the high weight of >2.5 t. Another safety aspect is the obscuring of the view on the sidewalk when parking. Here, especially small people (children) are affected, who can not see over the car and thus their view is obscured when crossing the street!

    @Checkerholic My mother is about to buy one. Seeing this video, I'm more than happy to let her continue. The passenger compartment doesn't seem to undergo a huge amount of deformation - certainly not enough to seriously injure the occupants - and the dummies end up swaddled in airbags. Considering they've just had a 2 1/2 ton mobile portakabin run into them at a closing speed of about 50mph, it's pretty impressive. The Q7 drivers come off best, but they're never going to find anywhere to park.

    Audi is like 3 times heavier, so Fiat did pretty good. Plus in real life you try to avoid head on crash at any cost,and there more mid size sedans on the roads rhan full size SUVs, so you have more odds to collide with them. Honestly I feal safer im my little turbo fiat than when I had 03 Altima,which I crashed on hwy in heavy rain at high speed. It only had 2 airbags,(fiat has 7) mine did not deploy, passanger one did, main impact was onthe back,then front,then sides. Walked out with belt rush.

    I like both vehicles, if I were spending my money I would get the 500. I think the 500 did very well in this test, structure performed as it should, although I would like to see how much intrusion the passenger cabin of the 500 suffered. Lets see the Q7 crash into an Iternational CXT, are you going to complain the Q7 is too small and light?

  • xIMyQIx
    xIMyQIx Vor 11 years

    I think the point about this test was, that the Q7 chassis is constructed relativly inflexible (quite common for SUVs). However, this leads to the result, that other cars are getting much more damaged than they should be. If the Q7 would bei able to absorb more energy as common in other vehicle categories, the crashs would be less risky for the other road users.
    Mercedes used a similar construction in the 80s til some people died due to unflexibel chassis (High force effect on occupants).

    Wow, I can't believe the deformation of the B pillar the Q7. That is pretty sad, but still I can tell you everyone in the Q7 at the very least survived (and likely with no injuries whatsoever) and everyone in the Fiat probably didn't, well maybe the passengers, but the driver is definitely dead. complete failure of the airbag, and a likely open head injury, well more like immediate death. Those things have horrid braking distances too. They sound like deathtraps to me.

      @I'm Not Using My Real Name It's got nothing to do with the brand. Obviously the force of impact was too great for the airbag to work as intended. If you think it would be any different in a small car from another manufacturer, you'd be mistaken. The Fiat 500 was one of the safest superminis at the time. And a Q7 weighs like 2,5 times as much and sits much higher from the ground, which makes quite a difference in a crash.

  • dude2106
    dude2106 Vor 12 years

    @u1430 It is still a good real world test, because when you drive a Fiat 500 you don't only crash into cars of the same seize. This very well shows what car is the safest. I think the 500 did a good job, but the Audi really was unharmed. The front door bends slightly, but other then that the crumble zones did their job perfectly. Of cause this is what you would expect for a car that seize.

    Yeah, I was going to say that is the most glaring safety issue here. Seems that after the airbag failed, the crash test dummy's head went flopping around the inside of the passenger cabin.
    Seems that the body of the Fiat held up reasonably well.

    The Fiat actually performed better than expected. For those that say "Buy an SUV if you wanna be safe", if people didn't drive these in the city the problem wouldn't actually exist. It would be like driving a tank around because it's safe, or walking around with a gun in case you happen to get in a fight.

  • MissMercedes
    MissMercedes Vor 12 years

    @kristekk Actually just the opposite. Most SUV are built (excluding the new XC90 and a few others) with a high riding frame structure. When impacting a smaller car, this is what causes the majority of damage, the sheet metal is as weak as a wet noodle.
    Now in the new Volvo, they designed the frame and chassis to ride low like a small car would, so in the event of collision with a smaller car, the SUV's frame would be impacting the smaller car's frame rather than a higher place.

  • tiaopiak
    tiaopiak Vor 11 years

    @SoHoBoi Actually from top view, the fiat 500 has failed to protect the cabin area as front end just protrude into the passenger area.NCAP rating is based on a collision of vehicle of similar size, and the vehicle with the larger mass (Q7 in this case) holds the advantage.However this only holds true if the car is made in same era. A car of the 80's cannot compete with a 2010's car even if it's a smaller vehicle.Therefore, people needs to understand how the test is done and it's parameters.

    @McLarenMercedes The fiat looked pretty damn safe until the airbag burst and then I was like: High velocity rotational acceleration= massive concussion and spinal injuries.

  • leuvenlife

    @smpal Such tests are done because accidents are random. Audi owners do not crash exclusively into audi's. The tests are done to see what large and small vehicles do to each other. The 500 is very popular, so using it is being quite realistic even. I was surprised to note that the airbag on the fiat burst, and wondered if this was caused by the height of the Q7 piercing the bag, so personally, I think this was a good choice of cars for this test. Another of these involved an S class and a smart

    @noarex2 No, he wants to see a crash test between the two of them to see which is the strongest.
    I may be biased, but I'd go with the Fiat. I've driven the Micra and ridden in a 500, and the latter seems a much more solidly engineered little go-kart. Better handling, too, if previous Fiat experience is anything to go by. The Nissan is all roly-poly (never actually tips or loses control, but masses of understeer and body roll) & gives an impression of being made from tinfoil. Fun to drive, tho!

    My little V.W. did an excellent job even on summer tyres. Low weight and skinny standard rubber... needs far less friction than a bigger car in order to stay in control. Almost like it had ice skates on.
    Then I swapped for a bigger Vauxhall on fatter, supposedly better tyres. Come the next major snow ... I had to abandon it in a train station car park I managed to slither into (with a bit of help). Could leave it idling in 1st gear with the wheels merrily turning, making no headway

  • xIMyQIx
    xIMyQIx Vor 11 years

    I forgot: One more point was, that the main girder didn't absorb that much energy (as mentioned before) and remained intact. That led to the point, that it just pushed away the engine of the Fiat 500 und would have caused fatal injuries to the driver due to total destruction of the leg area. Just like a massive spear. That should not happen under normal conditions.

  • gembol
    gembol Vor 12 years

    @DriftkingS2K you can see weight difference impact by the fact that Fiat is actually changing direction of move from some point of this crash (for example in first scene Fiat's starting to go back in 0.05). It's just a matter of momentum which is velocity multiplied by mass.

    Both cars are good cars in there own right, the test was incredibly unfair. The Q7 weighs in at over 3.5 tonnes and starts at £40,900. Whereas the fiat 500 weighs in at just 1 tonne and costs only around £12,500. Of course the massive Audi comes off better! You've just got to try not to crash head on in to one at high speed, which, let's be honest, doesn't really happen very often.

  • TahreyUK
    TahreyUK Vor 11 years

    @lilpandaboyy So long as its cushioned your head from impacting the steering wheel hard enough to cause injury before it goes pop, its done its job. Many airbags are actually designed to deflate very soon after firing, in case of accidental triggering - if it goes off while youre driving along, you dont want to have your head mashed into the headrest, or to have a big ol' cushion obscuring your vision.
    Mind that most accidents happen in a fraction of a second, on the scale of a popping balloon

    @xIMyQIx I don't think this is the case here. If you look at how much space is actually consumed by the crash in the Q7 you'd come to the conclusion that the Q7 is a "fair" crash partner. It's not Audis fault, that the fiat's bonnet is relativily small compared to the Q7's.

    Especially in a frontal crash between two cars, mass does count!
    The laws of physics cannot be defied by technicians. The occupant of the FIAT would have probably suffered lethal wounds, whereas the ones in the AUDI would have faced much minor consequences.
    As for Italian cars, the are fashionable, but if you really want a sport car, you've got to knock at Britsh doors.

    Fast cars must be light: so they aren't as safe as Volvos in crashes.

    @SuperBlizzard100 The cyclist would probably come off rather well, as euro cars also get rated on *pedestrian* safety in car-vs-human collisions.
    The plane however ... they're not known for their strength against stuff crashing into them. The general idea is to keep them well away from any potential collision. A cargo truck - assuming it was tall enough to even hit the plane's belly - would go straight through leaving a cartoonish truck-shaped hole.

The larger ones imported to europe have to be driven on what is technically a truck license and (don't quote me on this) probably have to have a truck MOT and abide by the lower speed limits... all in the name of safety!

Don't think so! EuroNCAP classifies cars for a reason! Raw results of crash tests (no matter - stars or percents) reflect only a safety against wall which is not a likely scenario.

    Enough said... A crash test like that is pointless because you already know the result before starting it !

    It was a Test from the "National German Car associatio" and that have been the conclusion from the final report of that test. Furthermore they criticised in general, that SUVs are badly constructed related to their passive safety systems (pedestrian protection, force absorption). The tested Q7 had just minor damages on his internal structure, so the damage caused by the crash looks much heavier than it actually was (only the front axis seems to be damaged, Framework seems ok).

    I mean it looks like the 500 gets owned but all the airbags from the roof (50 seconds in ) really help to support the impact

    @Stef3m It is more safe indeed, just because its much heavier. If you'd crash test Q7 with something comparable in size the mass does not matter this much and it's up to safety devices to prove which one of two would be safer

    Sure, so that way all of the energy of the crash can be transfered to you and the passanger, in which both have an even bigger chance of dieing. Plus with so little crumple space, the deceleration is way to fast for organs to take.

      @Bob der Braumeister Und warum sollte jemand freiwillig ein total unpraktisch zu fahrendes Raumschiff manövrieren anstatt ein kleineres Auto?

      @Stuartre Noe ja, das stimmt, aber viele kaufen sich einen protzigen SUV obwohl sie ihn nicht brauchen.

      ​@Bob der Braumeister Wir fahren selber einen Q7 e-tron und ich weiß nicht was du meinst. Audi ist eine solide Marke, aber das ist es dann auch. Innendrin viel Platz, riesiger Kofferraum, elegantes Design ohne viel Schnickschnack und hochwertige Verarbeitung.
      Wenn ein großes SUV ein Statussymbol wäre, wär's wohl ein Rolls Royce Cullinan. Audi ist schlicht und einfach eine solide Marke, mit Schwanzlänge hat das rein gar nichts zu tun.

    Good style is just a point of view.
    I think someone who buys a German car, expects it to be working flawlessly. And most of them has much more electronics, and stuff in it, so more parts=more chance something goes wrong. (I know it's not always true, due to engineering.)
    My point is, if you buy a cheap car, you are more prone to live with the car if small things break, but if you buy a more expensive car, you want it to be in 100% condition. That's just my opinion tough.

    The Fiat airbag split and burst at 1:02 , now I can't see that as being too safe...

    In fact they thought a law in Europe to force them to build SUVs with three load lines on the front that would ensure an optimal distribution of the impact.

    @wailingmongi Occhio che l'airbag ha ceduto solo perché nell'impatto il Q7 ha liberato uno spuntone metallico che ha rotto il parabrezza e tagliato l'airbag. Difatti il guidatore è l'unico "morto" mentre per il resto la 500 ha dimostrato che le 5 stelle le ha meritate tutte, mentre il Q7 ha dimostrato che per questi mezzi le normative non sono ancora adeguate, dato che pur classificate come auto hanno dimesioni e pesi maggiori di certi camion (2,7 contro 2,5ton).
