The Indica is strong indeed. But in an accident which is completely unknown to us, it is difficult to comment how safe the car is. Can't say how other cars will behave in such an accident, because it is unknown. Although one thing is sure, the 800 would've stood no chance.

Even if the accident is completely unknown, we can see the damage to it and logically we can comment on how safe the car. We would not have been able to comment if the car was planned and purposely dashed only on the part that is damaged, that is the hood! Its an accident in which anything can/could happen.

Yes, but if the accident was completely head-on, situations would differ. Cabin could've been affected.

What are you talking about??! Whats wrong with you?! I said the car is strong indeed, but you can't just say that looking at one accident and be confident about it. I'm not too sure whether it was head-on or no. Its mostly not an head-on collision looking at the windshield, bumper and the way the stuff is bent. If it was a proper head-on collision, it could've been fatal and then it'd be declared "All hatch's in India are crap in safety!".

Its you who is concentrating on taking out different outputs of the accident. If you cant argue properly, well forget it. Everyone who has replied in the thread knows about the accident and the condition of the car. Happy Clicking!!

Whatever you say Stratos.

All I meant was that it is not perfect to term a car "SAFE" by only looking at one accident. The Indica is strong enough, but given a different situation, it could've been fatal, thats all.

You drop a huge rock on the bonnet of a car smashing and completely crushing the engine. And then you go on to say - "The car is safe, nothing happened to the passengers". Is this logically right?!

The bus only rammed into the engine area and nowhere else. Heck even the windshield is not shattered except for a small area. So what would you go on to say - "WOW! That windshield is sooo safe, nothing happened to it even though a bus hit this car!"??!

Agreed! but since no one here actually saw wot happened, we can only speculate. I'd think that the indica driver took the u turn a bit too fast and a bit too carelessly. The bus driver could be at fault for driving above the speed limit and being in the rightmost lane.
what do u think?

Whenever you take U turn, though the roads are empty, drive slowly and be cautious.

If you are in the right most lane and see a junction open for U turns, make sure you keep the toes on braking pedal (off accelerator) immaterial of whether there is a vehicle to cross or not

These two things loaded on to the mind with this lesson will live longer.

Iam very new to driving & little bit of theoretical knowledge has helped me a lot in my effort to make my driving perfect to the maximum extent possible
