I'm more like a truck guy but damn this car is cute 😍😍☺

The merc would have gone through the barrier and kept on going.. and going...

the G force will kill you. No doubt about it. People say it's safe because it doesn't bend up, but if you have a egg wrapped in bricks, will dropping it at 70 - 90 mph save it? No. we all know the answer here. Smart cars are not safe. No matter the claims. It's just ridiculous.

Lets see a side impact...

Omg society Looks for me truly nice time XD

2:05 WTF

i think that a human would brake about half a second before the crash and possibly even a full second. these crash tests arent accurate in that sense.
Caitlin
Cute little car.
Caretaker Flynn
Can I destroy smart cars for a living too? :D
Cem Türkeş
Kamu spotu: smart öldürür !!!
Christian Colvin
70 mph smart car crash you'd be dead
Codi Kenley
A smart death trap
Cole Cooper
It's honestly impressive how well the steel cage handled the wreck... But it's also pointless. It's like the medieval suits of armor. If you had the best steel plating of the day, but the padding underneath couldn't soften the blow enough, the blade wouldn't need to penetrate to kill you. Your car may be fine after the wreck but your internal organs sure as hell won't be.
David Struve
I don't understand why they still crash test at only 40mph. The motorway speed in the UK is on average between 60-70mph. THAT'S the speed they should be testing at, or even up to 80mph. What they are currently testing at isn't nearly enough. I don't want to know if I'll survive a 40mph impact, I want to know if I'll survive during a motorway collision. Least if they test at those speeds you're pretty much guaranteed to survive at any slower speed.

So, does the Smart have a drain in the floor for draining out the occupants, or do the EMTs have to remove them with a sponge?

Crash at 5:00

I love how all the white paneling just flies off on impact.
DrumStick
The smart car itself can endure a hard crash, but the driver would get torn in half if the collision was hard enough, literally. 
Duffy512pd
You wouldn't have any legs after the smart car crash
Eric Feliciano
The steering wheel would have crushed the drivers chest...

1. Found this cool.\n2. Those freezes at 2:40 killed me xD
FpvExmouth
They should use real people in the tests maybe paedophiles, What do you think?
George Jordan
It's a jelle car
H8edsinclair
Having been a paramedic I'll tell you this right now just being able to open the doors will save you 20 to 30 minutes on that golden hour when trying to extract. That's one little amazing car when it comes to safety
Hahn
Use metric
Harry Belfore
Good luck finding where your legs have gone after that.

5:20 if you want to see the crash
ISUZU IMPULSE
I'll be honest in saying that I would probably feel safer in the Corsa. Just saying.
Imirish 21
Yeah but if a truck sideswiped you ......... You're dead
Issac Rudio
It should be called suicide car not smart car
Ivan Bunny
It's just like the 'ingenious' companies who make a bullet proof body armor that claim it can withstand the impact of a .50 cal round. Sure it may be impenetrable, but the kinetic energy will always kill you.
JeZZGro
5:00 and 7:07 if you wa't to see crash
Jean-Nicolas Allaire
There's nothing scientific with test. It's not because the steel cage is relatively fine that the passengers would be fine. In my opinion the passengers in the smart would be greatly injured or dead.
Jennie Hughes
Shatter the blocks ? Lmao

Don't trust Fifth Gear's crash tests. They are Biased!

Another thing to consider: Force = (mass X acceleration) On impact you are going to combine the forces of the two objects, and with a smaller mass the acceleration (deceleration) you experience will be greater, so with a much smaller mass than virtually every car on the road you will be taking on a much larger force on any impact. There is simply not enough room for the adequate crumple zones that would be needed to make up the difference.

Tough little smart never underestimate this little car
Leigh Burne
Never knew Smart Car bodywork was made of eggshell.

its the sudden deceleration that kills... smart car or not, it all depends on the speed

byebye legs for the driver...

How about a test against my 2016 2500HD Silverado?
Matthew Parker
I would have tested it at 80mph

Crash test a humvee
MrSupercar55
That concrete block got hyper-AIDS from that Smart car.

How is smashing a car at 70mph  at 90 degreess,  into concrete barriers, similar to any potential road accident also involving concrete dividing barriers?..... Nice safe car.... no doubt..... TV report.... complete bollocks..! 
Pavel Adamek
I am sorry but where, on a freeway, would this car hit the temporary wall at a high speed at a 90 degree angle? You should have tried sidesweeping in combination with the crash at a 45 degree angle (obstacle avoidance).

Now let's see real people in the cars.. :)
QuestV2
who else is watching this because there is no top gear anymore?
RICKYSPANISH
it only does 50...
Red_Jacket
Sure your body might be more or less intact but your organs, and brain are going to be a milkshake. Why would you even buy a smart car in the first place?! No storage space, down right dangerous to drive, and it makes you look ridiculous!

Why don't all cars come with ejector seats?
Sean Burns
just save as many of the old American automobiles you all can lol
Shaun
When a Truck hits it? no test there? LOL
Shawn Marrier
Hey Fifth Gear, next time you crash a Mercedes, get two and send one to me please.
Silas McGee
They should run the Smart car into a concrete barrier at 120 miles an hour
Sinky
I never go above 55mph, I'm just not interested in speed. BTW, I'm 38 not 70 years old!

Now I know how a Mercedes Benz \n\n\n\n\n\n\nI’ll go home

The Smart car is anything but. They handle poorly, they are gutless, and they are ugly. Did I mention unsafe?\n

The test is pretty much worthless without dummys.

Without test dummies with force sensors, this is entirely pointless. No one gives a shit if the frame of the car is in good condition after a 70 mph crash, if the occupants turn into spoiled pork smashing against the inside of the cage.\n\nMy next car is definitely going to be a full size, 5000 pound behemoth. It's bad for the environment but I was rear-ended last week, and next time I'll take the biggest car I can get so it's more their problem instead of mine.
atomgonuclear
They spent thousands of dollars doing this test and they didn't even bother to do a G force rating on the crash test dummies?? What a waste. You don't even need expensive sensors or the like.... the G force rating sensors are literally stickers you slap on the dummy and they break under load.

It's not safe buying a smart car. Smart car=death
dogsitter68
what happens to the occupants legs
joshuaoha
Pretty surprising actually.  I won't be talking crap about that car.
judolee64
Could the car not have some sort of instant foam that deploys at the moment of impact to lessen the trauma the passengers are subjected too. Just curious.
kotd009
they are junk.. its bad enough people barley survive with bigger cars..let alone buy this shit

Somewhere there is an insurance company out there saying \

El Smart es mas duro de lo que parece
norboe largusson
small cars are a death trap.. Not even woth that price .. I Mean price is a joke. What about 20 G shock ? Europpean small cars are joke .. 20 thousands $ for small car seriously ? In USa for 20 grand you can buy SUV , much safer , big SUV family car..\n20 grand is new sport ford GT .. You pay 50 000 $ for cramped vehicle , While in USa you can have for ( 50 grand) this huge and save truck .. minicopper , audi a3 are way too small , and price are joke . That why in USa no one is buying UE cars ..
streetracer111
MAN!! I thought the smart would be as flat as Miley Cyrus's ass when it hit the wall!
superdrummergaming
So what if you found a way to pair the large size/large crumple zones of the Mercedes(for example) with the ultra-rigid passenger compartment of the Smart? Would that not be the best safety system ever? A safe zone combining large car and Smart car advantages in a super safe crossbreed vehicle.

A friend of mine crashed headon with a Smart 3 months ago and she got lucky that she hit an incoming Renault 19 which has a very deformable front.The crash has been with around 50km/h for the smart and 30-40km/h for the Renault (impact speeds in the final police report wiaht a speed limit 80km/h in the area).The Renault front was melted down to the windshield with driver and front passenger getting out intact.The smart had all plastics on the front smashed but the steel structure specially the beam in front of the radiator was almost intact (even the radiator was in one piece without a leak) there was a small visibile defomation on the driver side roof beam.She sustained damage to her left lung and her right hand got wounded.The lung from the seatbelt and the very rapid stop of the smart itself sustained trauma and the hand from some flying plastics from the dashboard.So at the end yes the smart has a very rigid body but in the mean time it is very dangerous cause in a case of a crash the car shell is not dissipating any energy which means that the passangers are sustaining much higher forces which can result to a deadly internal organs damage.She spend a month in a hospital and she is almost OK now but no more small cars.They are really dangerous at speeds exceeding 50km/h.
wild bill
well. since they sell these in the USA how about putting it against a popular 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton truck?

Интересно конечно, но что-то не видно как в кабине обстоят дела с ногами...судя по ушедшему колесу в салон - им пизда, а то и мгновенная ампутация?
