Like this example of sandwiched Saab 9-5, here’s another great example of excellent set crumple zone that absorbs energy from an impact, by Saab engineers.
Also, it is a Saab 9-5, which suffered a very heavy impact from behind.
This is what is stated owner of this Saab 9-5, after accident:
“I’m fine. I was stopped waiting to turn left and a cab nailed me at 40mph — didn’t even brake. Evidently the Saab did what was intended and absorbed the impact. I have some minor abrasion on my neck from the seat belt but no lingering soreness anywhere else.”
