So after reading and watching reviews and the Crash tests we ordered an Arona. We have been informed that the Car has been built and is ready for transport to the UK.

But I have found this which has made me seriously question the safety of the vehicle.

Basically they do a swerve test to see how the car manages to maintain control using it's safety systems. The Arona does very badly and I have checked some of the other tests the Cars seem to respond as expected.

Maybe grounds to cancel the order ?

The VW T-Roc fares even worse than the Arona!

I have just watched a few more SUVs being put through this test on You Tube and to my eyes they mostly did worse than the Arona.
I think the lesson is if you are worried about stability when making sharp direction changes at speed get a low car.
