Crash Comparisons!

Whilst tapping away at the keyboard I got thinking, CF needs something different...This was the best I came up with, lol. As the title says, post results of your car's crash test here. You should be able to find videos on YouTube or similar fairly easily!

Here's mine...

1997 Xantia

Mine's an estate car though....1.5-stars apparently. Not good, lol. That's bad enough for a modern car to be taken off sale by today's standard!

This is the closest I can find. It's not even got the same front end as mine though. But here's some ratings:
