The un-crashable car is getting ever closer. While technology that AUTOMATICALLY slams on a car’s brakes to prevent an accident used to be the reserve of high-end luxury limos, you can now find it on £8,000 city cars. Tiff rounds up three cars fitted with different types of anti-crash technology and finds which one works best. An £80,000 Mercedes can supposedly brake automatically to avoid a stationary object from 150mph – but will the £8,000 Seat Mii perform just as well? We line Tiff up with a brand new type of test target used by industry crash experts Thatcham to see which radar system works best. Taken from Series 22 of Fifth Gear, first broadcast in 2013.
