    I really wish I knew the speeds that these collisions were tested at. I know they look faster than they actually are, so when you see the damage and realize what your everyday typical driving speed is, this is really scary.

    I think VW’s recent commercials showing actors in supposed every day situations getting into a crash are very effective. I wish SAAB could better advertise their safety, though I’m sure there’s some market research out there to suggest safety doesn’t sell cars, unfortunately.

    1985 Gripen,

    These speeds are 40 miles per hour for the test, the ones above in Sweden were at 75 miles per hour or 120km.

    I hope that helps.
