Very interesting to see the huge difference in deformation of the A pillar in these two cars. Reassuringly robust in the Jazz.

There are lots of Fit crash tests on Utube, the offset impacts are impressive.

There is an article in this week's Auto Express about 20 years of crash testing, the MK3 Jazz is used as the modern example. It is called the safest supermini on sale.

Seems reasonable. The infotainment system bug means you can't be distracted by music and in extreme cases it keeps you off the road by refusing to start :D

If you can get yours to start and did receive a hit you could walk away from an impact that would have killed you 20 years ago.
