Roll over

Matter of interest. Has anyone rolled their Eos. :eek: Did the pop up roll bars work and how effective were they, although I guess if they didn't work the reply would probably be coming from the afterlife.:rolleyes::rolleyes:

Hey Ho.

Apologies if this has been posted before, but there are some good (?) pictures and videos of the EOS undergoing its Euro NCAP testing. Its here if you have the stomach.

I've seen pictures of the Focus CC with the roll-over bars up. They punch up through the rear window. I'm sure the EOS is the same.

My old CC was involved in a front-end crash that was enough to write it off. It looked a mess but I walked away with a slight whack in the chest off the selt belt, some air bag burns on my hands and an achy shoulder. They build these cars to protect.

Note the time taken for the roll-over bars to activate in the frontal impact test - I hope the deployment is a lot quicker in a roll-over accident.

I just hope the bar activation sensor takes priority as soon as the car tilts more than a set amount from the horizontal including end-for-end inversions and not just sideways rollovers.
