Am i seeing right? the Honda City toppled over while the auto barely has any damages. Maybe the auto too toppled over and was turned over but it still doesn't have much damage....

Clearly shows what honda is made of .....

Safety is one area where i dont trust the japanese at all , no matter what f**** ratings they get , but somewhere down the line i feel very insecure when i seat in a japanese car and moreover when they are locally made ....

p.s I dont understand *** Honda as a brand is rated so high in india !
I mean IMO it has nothing so called outstanding except the Engine ....
I would say a Hyundai is a better bet and much more safe ...

Well , to believe this , i would suggest go and ve a seat in the new sonata and then the Honda accord , make both cars run at high speed ... It wont take more than few seconds for you to understand which one is more safer ...

Default Why Not

May be the lady driver got tensed and played with the steering which could have resulted in upsidedown & nothing related with the accident.

Any other cars would end up with the same fate faces a similar situation

the NHC is certainly not a sure footed car ,this however seems to be more of a driver error ..there is noway the impact could have flipped the car ..
the impact seems frontal for both the vehicles ,the 3 wheeler (being a 3 wheeler) should have been the first to flip in case of a heavy impact..

gr8guzzler - any info from the bystanders ?

Some time back I saw a New Honda City stranded in NH45 (highway) with front wheels looking each other. Its so lucky the vehicle hasn't toppled etc.

may be the car hit the auto a bit, the lady panicked and turned around and hit a divider and then the car flipped. because there is no way that the city could overturn with just a small hit to the auto
