I really would like to know the smart's outcome. On ABC they just compared a Suburban being 18ft long and 7400 lbs. as an alternative for your driving pleasure.
Obviously I'd park my little car and give up. That is not reality however, because there will always be someone bigger than you.
I have a belief that the smart has that magic cage which will keep me safe under almost all conditions. I realize in such an accident the smart will rotate and bounce away when it's struck in one of its corners, just hopefully not into another vehicle. I consider this cage a walnut shell. Will I really be safer in a Toyota Corolla, Civic, Jeep Patriot or whatever? Will I be safer in the smart than in the aforementioned cars? I want to know!
