Chinese SUV... Review - Best SUV in History!



Chinese 4x4 gets zero in safety test

Testers calculated that a driver would be unlikely to survive a head-on collision at 40mph, and in a side-on collision at 30mph the driver would suffer severe head and chest injuries due to a lack of side protection.

It is already on sale in Holland, Germany and Belgium and has been billed as the vanguard of a new invasion of Chinese vehicles.

The entire story:

wow, unbelieveable! it seems criminal to be able to sell vechicles like that, thank god for a saftey standard in canada. but now that i think about it 40 MPH is pretty quick, but that is still a ton of damage and that suv crumples up like an accordion.

Think the life of my worst enemy is still worth more then 10k, let alone my own life. Too bad people still buy this crap, let alone make it.
