I am really curious to know what the silver car is. The placement of the text on the wheels remind me of a Nissan Maxima or something from the from the 90s. As you can tell, the generation gap between cars shows how safety and materials have advanced. I can only infer that the front end of the silver car was designed to crumple as to absorb impact damage to prevent harm from a frontal impact. I would imagine the Mercedes Benz to do the same on a frontal impact.

HELLO EVERYONE! As an expert on this very subject, I would like to explain WHY the front end of a car looks more damaged!

You see, the front end has more "crumple zones" built into it so that things like the hood don't thrust pack, thus parting your head from your body

Hoods are supposed to bend just as the picture depicts. The fenders are supposed to crumple as well. This is so that the impact is absorbed, and to reduce the chance of rigid parts being broken from their mountings are ******* your life up!

The rear end of a car? Well, the bumper was impacted. The bumber is welded directly to the frame. If the car had been impacted higher up, the trunk and rear quarter panels would have been crumpled.

ALSO!!!! The front of a car is OPEN to airflow for the radiator and condenser, so of course it will be damaged! It's just aluminum fins for ***** sake!

But if you look closely, you will see that both cars have the same extent of damage structurally. The car that rear-ended the other only LOOKS like it is way more ****** due to the hood doing it's job, and the fact that the front end has a giant open area and lights. Both cars have ****** bumper covers.

I just.... I don't understand stupid people that well...

You mean japanese right?
Most chinese cars do not make it out of china, and if you are trying to say japanese cars are of low quality you obviously know nothing about cars lol.

Anywho cars are supposed to crumple like that, you know to stop people breaking necks and flying out windows, things like that.

As a german luxury vehicle owner, I'm tellin you right now, that little ding probably would cost just as much to fix as the other car. Maybe less depending on engine damage/frame damage etc.

People saying it would cost more are wrong. Now if my car looked like the rear, then yes. Yes it would cost way more to fix.

Although dude got rear ended, so buddy who hit him has to pay for both.

pic related, my car.

It would probably cost 4 times as much to fix the merc than it would the other car.

Quality scales with cost.
If the car from China didn't have a $30,000+ price difference, I'm sure the quality would be quite comparable.

The problem with going for the cheaper fixes is that it ultimately costs more, since it takes up the material more, whereas the better engineered stuff, though more costly, would save more.

The more energy expended on the crumpling of the car the less expended on the driver protecting him. Physics can be cool too you know.

>implying you know it's made in China.
>Implying Benz doesn't take more money to repair, even for a minor damage like that.
