Accidents are accidents, most of the time we don't get to choose whether to have a collision or not otherwise it won't be called an accident. One of the key deciding factors in my family when we cross shop European and Asian cars are safety. Europeans have a long history of building fun and safe cars. They still do, but Asians have caught up and this particular test exposes a flaw in current design, no need to get defensive about it.
