Saab have decided to film their crash safety team testing out their new Saab 9-5’s safety systems in the form of a head-on crash test. What better way is there, right? They pitted two cars against each other to collide head on at 60km/h. Watch the video above and check out the front ends of the two cars turn into what can only be described as a mess of crushed metal. But if you look a little closer, you’ll notice that the passenger area is relatively intact. The video is educational in a way that it shows you what kind of data crash test engineers actually look at after a car has been smashed. Or at least that’s what Saab makes it out to be.

Look after the jump for a full gallery of the Saab 9-5.
