good/new crash safety technology vs. old

Related to my post at viewtopic.php?p=593719#p593719, I'd posted

Here's another:
What 20 years of safety progress looks like in one crash ... est-video/ - from 2016:
The Mexican-built Nissan Tsuru is dead, or at the very least, dying. It is being escorted off the production line because it will not pass Mexican safety regulations that will come to effect in 2019. Americans might recognize the Tsuru, because underneath the badging and nigh-imperceptible cosmetic changes it is still very much a Nissan Sentra sedan, the one introduced here for 1992.

You might not recognize the Tsuru at the end of this IIHS crash-test video, however. It goes up against a 2016 Nissan Versa and illustrates how far safety engineering has come in two decades. No matter how fondly you remember the old Sentra, it is woefully outdated in the safety department; 2016 Tsurus do not have equipment we take for granted, like airbags, or ABS brakes, or modern crash structure.

Post more examples here.

'19 Bolt Premier
'13 Leaf SV w/premium (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium (lease over)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.
