2012 Audi A6 CRASH TEST
The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. The A6 is fitted with Audi's adaptive frontal airbags and seat belts. Sensors in the front seat rails detect whether an occupant is positioned close to the steering wheel (a small driver, for example) or more rearwards. The restraint system is tuned accordingly, using special vents in the airbags and seat belt load limiters adapted to the appropriate occupant size. In the frontal test, the system worked well and both the driver and passenger's heads were well protected. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the dummies' knees and femurs. Audi showed that the car would provide a similar level of protection to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. In the side barrier impact, the dummy indicated good protection of all body regions. However, the driver's door was found to be unlatched after the test and the car was penalised for this. In the pole test, the car provided marginal protection of the driver's chest. The seat and head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.

When large, truck-based SUVs collide with passenger cars or minivans, the results can be devastating for the occupants of the latter.
But fatalities in such accidents are on the decrease in the United States thanks to measures employed by automakers. Traffic deaths are down 64 percent since the year 2000 due to changes in automobile design such as lower bumpers for SUVs and better-protect cabin cells for passenger cars.
In 2000, the death rate for car and minivan passengers in collisions with trucks or SUVs was 44 deaths per million. That came down to 16 deaths per million by 2009.
The study was conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, a private-sector group based in Arlington, Virginia.
"By working together, the automakers got life-saving changes done quickly," said Joe Nolan, the institute's chief administrative officer.

Crash test:Child in mothers hands/Ребенок на руках у матери
One chief of Russian Traffic Police said: "Mother's hands are the best protection". You can see he's damn wrong! Как сказал один высокий чиновник ГИБДД: "Руки матери - лучшая защита!" Как видно из этого ролика, он сильно заблуждался http://www.recarostart.ru/crush_tests/
2014 Mercedes S-Class - assistance systems animation
Mercedes has officially unveiled the 2014 S-Class at the Airbus A380 delivery center in Hamburg, Germany.
Designed to become one of the most luxurious and advanced vehicles ever constructed, the 2014 S-Class has an evolutionary design that incorporates a sportier front fascia, a larger grille and a gentle slanting rear end. The sleek styling enables the model to have drag coefficient of 0.24 which is pretty impressive considering the pint-sized CLA has a drag coefficient of 0.23.
