    Yeah it also scored 1/5 in NCAP crash test so apparently a death trap

      that's due to the lack of electronic nannies not crash protection, if you don't have all the chirping gay ass sensors you automatically get 1 stars

        untrue
        an otherwise "safe" car without electronic safety nannies gets 3 or 4 stars (like Volkswagen up! or suzuki swift)

        spring fared worse in euro ncap testing than a 2009 Chevrolet Spark which is a 90s daewoo with a makeup

          Pretty sure those tests were done far earlier. Were they tested now they would also get 1 star.

            euro ncap rating for 2019 vw up is still valid, same for fiat 500 done in 2017 (it says not valid but only for the cabrio version)
            both cars scored 3+ despite having similar low level of safety assists 500 is actually lower by 5%
            suzuki swift's 3 stars was still valid in 2021 which is the same year that the dacia spring's testing was performed - and it had even lower safety asist rating, but scored 83 and 75 on adult and child occupant respectively

            its really hard to compare against anything post 2009 since there hasn't been many cars with this low of a score. if you skimp on basic safety features like a non-deforming cell or a dash that won't impale you its hard to expect safety nannies

            As a counterpoint, the latest version of the Zoe got 0 (zero) stars in standard trim, while the previous one got 5 stars based on the old 2013 regs. While it's true that the new one is missing some stuff, that's a massive drop, which cannot be explained merely by some equipment being removed.

            Two miatas crashing head on into each other at 45 mph is less safe than two Suburbans doing it. Weight and size is inherently safer.

            Their crumple zones and distance they can crumple are much, MUCH smaller than a suburban's. That matters.

          Biggest issue with the Spring is, all the parts have to shipped over from China, they're not made locally. That adds a shitton of money to the final cost.

        No, it's made entirely in china, they want to produce them in europe since governments are removing subsidies for non european cars, but for now it's 100% chinesium made entirely with chinesium parts and slapping a renault charger assembly since it needs to be european compliant.

    CAN A SMALL CITY CAR BE SAFER THAN AN SUV?
    The answer to this question is not clear-cut. The year of manufacture and the equipment of the car are important, but so are the skills of the driver. Safety standards, design and technology are constantly evolving. That's why a new, small city car can offer better protection for its occupants than an older SUV. Cars today have much more extensive passive safety structures. Their numerous components are made of very strong damping materials, such as EPP foamed polypropylene. It should also be borne in mind that small cars are more maneuverable and easier to control, which sometimes makes it possible to avoid dangerous situations. The ease of handling when maneuvering or parking can be a great advantage for less experienced drivers. In contrast, ten-year-old, large vehicles had a less reinforced construction that did less to protect occupants in the event of a rollover. They also lacked modern electronics and the ESP system, which is particularly important for large cars. This solution has only been mandatory equipment in vehicles since 2012.

    in addition to the risk by other vehicles, there are other accident risks, and large and heavy cars like the ones we have today dont perform well.
    if you dont believe this, you can ask your car insurance company which vehicles cost more and why.
    I wont drive a tank, I prefer cars.
    and I certainly wont buy a tank just because 60% out there dont have a brain.
    yes, even if this means my risk is a little higher.

      You can buy a car. Drive it and enjoy, nothing wrong with that. But yes, full size SUVs are objectively, factually, the safest vehicles.
