Having a discussion with my younger mate, Junior about how some old things compare to their newer counterparts. So I said, a Merc S -class is often said to be ahead of its time and how there's some tech on the 10year-old Merc that isn't even found on more-recent cars (like his 2014 Fiesta), or is only just appearing on newer cars. And then we turn to safety. Junior lauds his Fiesta is 5star rated NCAP and he believes it's safer than the 2008 S-class. He'd rather be in his 2014 Fiesta if it crashed headlong into the 2008 S-class. I'd have thought the much larger, heavier S-class would be safer?? Any thoughts anyone.
