I’ll bet you weren’t expecting that. Modern car safety has come a long way in the protection of it’s passengers. I’ll have to admit, I thought the much heavier Bel Air was going to fair a lot better than it did in this crash test, however, you can’t deny that the Chevy Malibu was the clear winner in this match-up. That makes me feel pretty safe after seeing that.
