    FIAT 500 safety compared to competitors





    The Fiat 500 striking a deformable barrier at 64kph (40mph).
    Notice how the windshield /A pillar keeps its relative shape.







    The Chevrolet Aveo at the same speed. Notice the catastrophic
    deformation to the windshield (A) pillar. The Aveo is 30 inches
    longer and 546 pounds heavier than the Fiat 500.









    The Ford Ranger pickup at the same speed. Again, catastrophic
    damage to the windshield (A) pillar. The Ranger is over 64 inches
    longer and 2000 pounds heavier than the Fiat 500. Size isn't
    everything!

    well Dave I have a question, how hard is the Fiat 500 to steal vs the competitors? I know this is a little off topic, but I really want to know
