The Swiss company Dynamic Test Center (DTC) conducted a crash test that shows how far the passive safety of cars has gone. The tests were attended by the Fiat Uno hatchback and the BMW 525d E61 police station wagon.

Testers simulated a typical rear-end collision. Fiat crashed into the rear of the station wagon with 100% overlap at 90 km / h. The German model had a driver dummy and two more dummies in the back. In the luggage compartment there was a cargo weighing 210 kg.

After the impact, the front part of Fiat was crumpled: both the engine compartment and the A-pillars and even the roof were deformed. The steering column and pedal assembly are bent upwards. It is worth noting the strong displacement of the front panel towards the driver and passenger seats. At the same time, BMW’s bumper was slightly damaged.

It is worth mentioning that the Fiat Uno is one of the most popular cars in history. It was produced from 1983 to 2014 and has sold over 8.8 million units. The BMW 5 Series E60 / E61 was produced from 2003 to 2010.
