Based on a quick glance at the video, the cabin remains largely intact in all cases. I didn't see any body parts hit hard surfaces either, except maybe the rear passenger's head on the C-pillar in the T-bone test.

I'd eyeball it as pretty good, but who knows what they are looking at.

“Lacking things like autonomous braking and lane departure control”

I’ll take my Pumpkin Spice Latte with 2%, my yoga Capri pants in white, and my Volvo in blue, please.

My nieghbor's kid had an incident in his 2000(?) XJ on Christmas Eve. Story I heard was a truck turned left in front of him. Not sure of the extent of his injuries, but he was home that night and not getting further medical attention until Wednesday morning. He hit his head and has significant shoulder, back and leg pain. Standing and walking are not his thing at the moment.

OMG. That looks horrible. I hope he recovers well. A reminder to care about vehicle safety...

I'm still feeling no love.

I think it is going to sell well.

I doubt there will be one in my driveway. I have a hard time getting in and out of the current 4 door jeep (long legs) I'm sure this will be just as bad

Waiting to see how the diesel works out in this application.

It’s wickedly long which could be challenging. Or not.
