Just plonking in 6 Airbags does not warranty a 5 Star Result.

The car needs to fare well in many other parameters like Child Protection, Pedestrian Protection, Safety Assistance (ESC etc), and most of all a stable body shell.

Just trying to point out that the tests are not a full representation in any way. (To be honest, I'm not really a believer in those at all.)
Well, I studied some accidents online and I found that occupants survived in Aspire - in some very bad crashes. I provided a URL in an earlier post - the people in car survived when car got crushed between trucks - I am sure the rear truck driver would have applied brakes hard as well!! Please check - https://www.thrustzone.com/ford-aspi...board-survive/

Other accidents -



The car is relatively better than other options in this segment.

PS - I do own one!!
