    Anyone heard of Global NCAP?

    They apparently smashed an Indian Tata Nano if anyone’s interested in seeing what zero stars looks like…

    The part of that which I didn't expect was how the steering wheel made a bee-line to the driver's throat! If the rest of the injuries don't kill you, taking a baseball-bat-like blow to the larynx surely will!

    Yeah, read about them and the horrendous crash safety of the mini cars in India (alas, both my parents and in-laws drive variants of the Maruti-Suzuki Alto):

    BBC News - Popular Indian cars fail crash tests

    Good that Global NCAP - headed by Max Mosley of Formula 1 admin pedigree - is forcing manufacturers from cutting corners.
