Good to know that safety isn't compromised with the low weight

I still can't get over how narrow those tires are. I'm sure my Altima has wider tires than these cars lol.

I would think it should have a decent crash rating, but as for insurance- this will probably make my wallet hurt the most.

Both Subaru and Toyota tend to focus greatly on safety so it "should" fair very well if not 5 stars.

I'm guessing it will have 7 or 8 airbags.

We have front, side, side curtain, so that is 6.

We have confirmed in the US that it has knee airbags as well. If that is driver only, or driver and passenger we don't know.


I expect this to be very safe compared to any other sports car you could sample in the same price/size.

Having personally put my knees through the dashboard of a car, I speak from firsthand experience when I say that is the most ridiculous thing I have heard of all week.

No one knows, but this is what is holding up pricing and option info. I'm sure it will pass with flying colors, but they can't offer a release date until the feds have given their OK.

What is ridiculous about it? Almost all new cars have them, and I'm sure even economy cars will have them within a few years.

They prevent your femur from breaking on the steering column or dash by keeping the legs in a good position away from harm.
