Every year, car magazines and car websites compile lists of the safest cars – ie cars that constructively and with safety equipment ensure the lives of drivers and passengers in the vehicle in the event of an accident. Since Saab cars are not produced, these lists generally do not include Saab vehicles even though they belong to the top of safety, as the lists include only new vehicles that can be found on the market.
However, in practice, Saab cars prove their dominance in the field of driver and passenger safety on the roads around the World every day. It is enough to look at our list of typical traffic accidents that we record around the world, where we often see that Saab cars saved passengers from impossible situations.
In this blog post, we note another such situation, this time noticed last week on the roads in Poland. The driver of the Saab 9-3 WagonDamian from Poland took part in a terrible traffic accident, and not through his own fault. Fortunately, Damian passed without any injuries, but the Saab Wagon was destroyed, and he is already looking for another to buy.
The traffic accident was caused by a woman coming from the opposite direction, driving an Opel Corsa. She simply did not adjust her ride to the wet and rainy conditions on the road, and she entered a sharper curve too quickly, just when the Saab 9-3 Wagon came from the opposite direction.
The incident was inevitable, the driver of the Saab noticed the danger in time and started braking, but a strong frontal blow followed – a typical collision with a small overlap. The frontal crash zones on the Saab performed their role and absorbed the bulk of the impact, the airbags were also activated, and the driver was safe.
