      My aunt was rear ended on the highway in one of these and walked away with some pain and bruising. The driver of the Chevy that hit her was airlifted.

      to be fair look at the crash tests of other cars from the 1980s. This car actually seems much better than average for its time.

      The thing that gets me is these dummies have no muscles... Humans would have more resistance due to muscle..also what style of seatbelts were these... My coupe's slide on a rail while my sedan's are bolted to the seat from factory... Either way this makes me want a 5 point though...

      a sprinter (human runner, not the Merc van) reaches half the speed of this - imagine hitting a wall then. Muscles do not help there, and may be even these engineers have thought about the topic

      I had a car accident while i was driving this model (e30 coupe 1988 year) and I was a driver. The speed was approximately 45-50 km\h. I crashed into a road bump (safety equipment on the curb)... Eventually, the seatbelts saved me, and I am Ok. Moreover, I repeated this car a then I had been driving it for 2 years. Now, I am starving about it, BMW e30 drives like sex. e30 wanted, but year to year rust does its job

      I crashed my first BMW 325es, slammed the car right into the back of an Infiniti G20 back in 1999. I just happened to look away for a few moments and ran near full force at 40 mph far too late to brake. The car suffered far less destruction compared to this test since the rear of the Infiniti was smashed beyond recognition. The E30 held up excellent, the bumper took all the impact along with creases in the front fenders illustrating the impact points. Hood was bent but not much. Sadly the car was totalled as the front grill was pushed into the radiator along with the transmission and driveline being destroyed from impact. Engine actually ran ok after impact. I had no injury just shaken up. The idiot infiniti driver was fine until he reported severe back and shoulder pain to insurance weeks later.

      I agree at least as long as we're speaking in terms of performance. Not many cars of 2010s look very nice though. And I guess Japs have improved in terms of crash safety too. In the 1980s very few Japanese car could match BMW or Saab or Volvo in a crash test.

      For 1985 the bimmer did very well compared to other 1985 cars on the market at the time. I did own one in 1985 and took delivery in Germany. I currently own a 1998 Subaru Outback that's being replaced with a 2015 Outback.
      The 2015 Outback has received top marks in the crash test.

      +D McNamara So which engineering degree do you hold? The current line of Subaru's have the highest crash ratings here in North America (IIHS )and the EU (NCAP). These are the industry standards. Before you go discounting the current line of tests or vehicles, how about providing some solid proof of your comments. Sure I can sit here and spew out garbage without any proof, but like I said IIHS and NCAP are my proof, what's yours? http://www.euroncap.com/en http://www.iihs.org/

      Staged car wrecks by Governments/Insurance companies are just that "staged".They in no way represent the real-world. Japanese/Korean vehicles have a tendency to split and come apart at important structural seams that are not overlapped; they are death-traps.

      I would not want to be in any Subaru,Toyota,Hyundai,etc.in any real-world accident where significant speeds/impacts are involved.....either with a solid object...or let's say a 1988 Chevy Caprice/S-Class Benz of that era.

      A cars overall"safety"rating can be changed greatly by simply which engine,tires-tire pressure,wheels,dive angle,ride height,etc........and the variation in curb-weight. And since the car-manufactures know what to manipulate for given tests beforehand....crash tests rating are easily rigged even before impact with a barrier in a warm warehouse.
