    The rear roll bars looks like they were asleep!

    I reckon they would of just deployed in time if it had flipped.

    I think they are there to help in the event of a roll - certainly to protect rear passengers

    I think they only deploy as a result of a wheel leaving the ground which didn't happen in the crash test straight away making the bars look like they were slow to react.

    They are bult into the black lid section - they are the two sections behind the headrests - pretty useful piece of kit.
