To demonstrate the safety benefits of newer cars, ANCAP (Australasian New Car Assessment Program) crash tested a 2015 Toyota Corolla with a 1998 Toyota Corolla. The test found that the driver of the older Corolla would likely have died as a result of the 64km/h collision, whereas the driver of the newer Corolla — which has a five-star safety rating — would have sustained minor injuries.
