The Australasian New Car Assessment Program, or ANCAP, sent two Toyota Corollas crashing against one another in a 40 mph partial-overlap crash test. One of the cars was a 2015 model and the other was a 1998 model.
The point of the test was to highlight how much of a difference new vehicle safety technology makes in preventing car crash injuries. The 2015 Corolla scored 12.93 out of 16 point and got a five-star rating, due to the fact that the passengers would have made it out alive if a crash like this ever happened in real life.
The newer model faired much better than the 1998 model; using stronger safety cell and modern technology such as airbags to protect the driver and passengers.
