SOme of the best seller have been tested by Latin NCAP according to Euro NCAP standards, and the results are really bad: Most small cars receive one star ratings, no wonder when airbags are still option or not even available. Shame on GM, Ford, Fiat etc. for offering their newest small cars in Latin america still with standard of mor ethan 20 yeras ago....

By 2014, airbags will be mandatory in South America, but still, no word on side airbags, head airbags, ESP and so on. I guess marketing wise a flashy stereo or stripes on a car still make more snese....
