From the second worst performer in 1997...
To the best in 2012.
damn, what a difference... we all hate cars getting bigger and heavier, cars design changing because of safety regulations, but if that is the result, im ok with that
The E36 was the second worst performer in its class. It only scored 10 points and one star. Below is Euro NCAP's say on the E36:
The worst car was the Citroen Xantia with an abysmal 9 points. The Audi A4 scored 17 points and the Mercedes C-Class 16 points.
I remember that the B5 Audi A4 wasnt such a top-safe car either...?
The highest Euro NCAP rating at the time was four stars. The B5 A4 scored two out of four stars.
In 2002, five stars became the overall top rating and the B8 A4 scored five out of five. Look how the windshield didn't even crack in the offset crash test
