Chinese car - Cherry Amulet - crash video - is your life worth this little?
This crash test video of a Chinese car, the Cherry Amulet, at a mere 65kmh shows how unsafe the cheap imports are. Surely your life, and that of your
family is worth more than the money saved on one of these vehicles.

Another Chinese car crash video, this time the Brilliance make, from Europe, in French with English subtitles, people considered dead in this
Back in 2007, Chinese automaker Brilliance made international news when its BS6 sedan failed crash tests performed by the ADAC (Germany's version of
our AAA) in fantastic (and frightening) fashion. The crash tests were performed according to Euro NCAP guidelines at the time, and the mangled heap of
metal that remained was truly horrific.
Brilliance is back with the BS4 sedan, and again the ADAC has performed its full battery of crash tests, though this time using newer Euro NCAP
guidelines that take into account the availability of electronic stability control as standard equipment and potential damage to pedestrians. How'd
it do? Just like the Brilliance before it, the BS4 scored zero stars.
It's not all bad news, though. Under the old Euro NCAP guidelines, the BS4 would have achieved three stars, a score that the BS6 needed two tries and
a structural redesign to match. Even watching video of the BS6 crash test compared to video of the BS4, it's apparent that Brilliance has learned a
thing or two about how to keep car from folding up like an accordion during a frontal impact. Still, it wasn't enough to score a single point in the
new tests, which means Brilliance once again needs to go back, makes some changes and try again.
