Car crash test at 120 mph: no survivors

posted by Jason Kottke   Feb 18, 2016

As we saw in the crash test comparison of the 2009 Chevy Malibu and 1959 Chevy Bel Air, today’s cars are built with safety features like airbags and crumple zones to protect passengers from impacts. But as this crash test of a Ford Focus hatchback travelling at 120 mph shows, there’s not much you can do for passengers at that speed.

This Smart Car does pretty well at 70 mph though. (via @daveg)
