I remember the presenter (Needles I think) saying to the techy that the new Espace had a problem with the airbags because they hadn't gone off - the techy said that the new Espace hadn't thought that the accident was severe enough to deploy them The driver of the old Espace would have been killed and the passengers would have probably been injured, but everybody would have been OK in the new car.

Makes you think.

A guy at work had a head on colision at ~50mph last week, he was driving an old car and fortunately the car he hit was old - they both walked away uninjured, if he'd hit a 4 or 5* car he'd probably be dead or badly injured.
