Auto Express

is reporting that ADAC of Germany, one of Europe's biggest automobile clubs, was able to flip one of Renault's new Logan budget cars during a sudden avoidance maneuver at only 40 mph. What's more shocking is that the drivers' side A-pillar caved in when the car rolled onto its roof. While the car did lack electronic stability technology, others cars without this safety feature merely slid in previous tests. A Renault UK spokesman, however, has dismissed the incident saying that the car had already passed the test twice but was fitted with a wrong tire after one was punctured, which evidently led to these shocking pictures. Even if that were the case, the collapse of the A-pillar is still a serious issue that Renault should investigate before the car goes on sale.
