Even a 1960s Chevrolet Impala with a V8 engine would get crushed by my 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid
Quite literally - I never tire of sharing this video whenever someone says that old cars were built like tanks:

Thatís always painful to me to watch a 1959 bat wing style Chevy get destroyed for the sake of selling up the safety attributes of an Elipson platform Malibu. 

Speaking of a lack or a safety, Iím always intrigued by Central American variants of cars.  Most of the newer lower tier cars I see in Mexico only have two air bags.  The prices usually are somewhere under $20,000 USD.

That is painful to watch that 1959 Chevy destroyed.
