    Good read about crash testing

    https://www.iihs.org/ratings/vehicle...hatchback/2017

    Institute for Highway safety.

    Weird they rate the 2014 safer than the 2017 as I think the body structure and airbag layouts are identical.

    Mirage owners look at the world differently than everyone else, but in a better way
    We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century, the greatest small car now available!

    The small overlap test is new. I'm sure my 2015 would do equally as bad.

    We lost another car the other day. Car was hit in the drivers side, rolled twice and landed on it's side against a fire hydrant. Our car was doing well under 50kph(30mph). Some "new Canadian" in a dodge journey ran a stop sign at a busy 4 lane road. It looked like it flipped over the hydrant and smashed the cvt and broke an engine mount. The driver seems ok.

    The bumpers and rad support looked good til the dumbest tow truck driver I've seen in years tried to up right it. It took him about 3 hrs in total then another 45 mins to tow it 4 blocks and unhook it. There's not much left now to salvage.

    Good grief. The Mirage is so light you can almost pick it up and toss it into the bed of a full size pickup and drove on. Lol
