    that range rover took a hell of a bash probably due to how low that tinted sunvisor is on front windscreen.

    Airbags aren't as easy to deploy on modern cars. The first airbags back in the early 90s would go off if you farted too loudly. Now they're set so they only go off if really required, to avoid injury from the airbag itself.

    My boss was in a fairly big accident in his Mk4, and the airbag didn't go off in it. Pre-tensioners went off, but the airbags stayed firmly in their place. His car was totally wrecked, engine fell out of it and all.
