If man can learn to improve from his mistakes and from the many trials of life, something has gone wrong in the design of these vehicles. They were poorly designed, resulting in accidents and general damage.
The history of automobile safety is not full of success stories and it is not uncommon for designers and manufacturers to go through a process of trial and error to arrive at a car that protects the health of the driver.
Although we are more used to driving fast cars with comfortable equipment than in the past, the issue of safety has come a long way: up to 30-40 years agotraveling by car was dangerous to health.
From the use of absolutely unsuitable materials to bizarre ideas for interior spaces, today thanks to advances in increasingly advanced safety methods, cars roll off the assembly line with greater safety efficiency.
The 10 most dangerous cars in history
There is a reason why you will no longer come across all the cars on the market. They are often interrupted for the best possible reasons. So what were the most dangerous car models in history? Let’s see together 10 of the most dangerous cars that have arrived on our roads.
The car was equipped with bat doors, particularly impressive and unprecedented for the time. However, this made the vehicle increasingly dangerous. According to The Brown Firm“The car’s distinctive design features have caused serious safety problems.”
When the vehicle was involved in a rollover, it was difficult, almost impossible, to open the doors. Because they locked and could not be opened by the people inside, unless the glass was broken.
The Chevrolet Corvairs had problems bad smells. Sometimes the engine released toxic fumes into the vehicle.
This car also had a steering responsibility and poor handling, due to its unbalanced weight. The car was also featured in the book “Unsafe at Any Speed”By Ralph Nader.
A faulty engine is not only very scary to deal with, it is an important feature of any vehicle and takes most of the work and time to repair.
The engine of the Audi 5000 it had a flaw that made it accelerate at a given moment. Unfortunately, this has resulted in many fatalities. That’s definitely not a good thing for the German carmaker.
In fact, the Mustang is known to be one of the most dangerous cars in the United States and also in the world at large. Many reports have shown that the number of deaths and collisions involving the Ford Mustang is 4 times more frequent than with any other car.
However, most of the accidents were not caused by a matter of serious structural or design defects of the car. But many young drivers ended up buying this car for very illegal reasons: excessive speed.
The Geely CK is a Chinese car, which was first produced in 2005. Apparently, it is only sold in a number of locations around the world such as Russia, South America and China. However, the sale of the Geely CK has been banned in the United States and some European countries that pay attention to car safety.
The car he failed his security exams since it was produced in 2005. Surprisingly, most of the Geely CK it has no airbag. The situation is so bad that safety testers have said that the car’s body is prone to total damage during an accident, which gives the passengers no chance of survival.
Over the past decade, sales of compact and smaller cars have increased, mainly because they are more fuel-efficient and more affordable. Additionally, these cars attract lower insurance and taxes. The Toyota Yaris is one of these cars, but with all the great advantages, has a big flaw: security.
Its small structure, in the event of an accident, will deform causing damage to passengers. According to statistics, there are 29 compensation claims for every 1,000 Toyota Yaris purchased.
It was a real failure for the Hyundai Pony, not just for the poor framebut also for the suspension problems and rear-wheel drive which made it extremely dangerous for drivers in case of heavy snow or pouring rain.
The Chevy Colorado Pickup is one of the most dangerous mass-produced vehicles currently available. Out of every million records, statistics show 93 people die. Most of these deaths occurred in accidents involving no other vehicle.
This suggested that the Chevy Colorado could be hard to handle or have more power than users expected, making it possible to lose control.
Ford Bronco II
Famously known as Bucking Bronco. It ended up being a very heavy car and when this was combined with a faulty suspension the car became very susceptible to rollover. The Ford Bronco II yes flips when cornering more than any other vehicle and caused more than 800 dead.
The Chery A15 is a Chinese-made subcompact car first released in 2004. It has since been exported to numerous countries around the world, but has been limited mainly to Russia, Ukraine, Asia and South America. This is partly due to the horrible safety features of the car.
Tests carried out by motoring officials and magazines show that, like the Geely CK, the body is likely to curl almost completely during a collision.
