Re: Safety?

@stucs201 "...the Defender and it's predecessors..."

It's "its", not "...and it is predecessors..."

The Defender could only be (much) worse. So the point revealed in the video remains valid.

FACT: Big dumb SUVs generally have very poor crash safety. Too many people have wrong ideas on this point, which is exactly why Fifth Gear had to make the video. In the USA, they did a similar test of old and new Chevy, with the surprising to some result.

Anyone that assumes that 'big dumb heavy' = 'crash safety' is just hopelessly ill-informed.

Their confidence in their daft misbelief is just aggravating.

Ignorant fools in heavy vehicles. Not good. Too common.
