I must say that I was surprised to see that it was possible to pass this test without side airbags. It'd be very interesting to see if the addition of those extra airbags would let the Ka pass this test.
Thanks for sharing. So it is not just about airbags but also about the build. Kia sedan with stronger build quality than the Ford. Times are changing!

Wow! the Honda has a reputation for making tin cans but looks like the tin cans are indeed solid. There must have been some great engineering that went behind this
