Old Car vs Modern Car during Crash Test / Evolution of Car Safety

The first models and designs for automobiles were created in the 15th century by none other than Leonardo da Vinci, and the state of the global auto industry has evolved significantly since. First steam, to electric, gasoline, and today’s hybrids, the evolution of safety features in cars plays an essential role in reducing the once overwhelming number of injuries and damages resulting from auto accidents. Auto manufacturers have come a long way over the history of auto safety, paving the way for improved global safety standards.

Nearby should be mentioned, that former cars were designed for different crash tests. If you design a new test, you could proov actual cars to be unsafe as well, as cars are designet for actual tests and not 10% more robust than they need to be for this test.

That doesn't change the fact, that cars have become more safe by far. this shuoldn't be asked by this.

But there is a further fact, which is to be considered:
The modern cars are heavier by far.
More mass gives a huge advantage against easier cars. But this advantage is an egoistic one, as the added mass is an disadvantage for the light weight car.
Regarding this to be an advantage or technical improvement is far from tough, as the added weight brings wasting of ressources of any kind with it.
If we are not able to make cars as leight weight as decades before, this is a sign of impotence against our responsibilty.
Then we needn't speak about alternative drives, as all alternative drives waste ressources and are not better for environment than old combustion engines regarded from some perspective.
With improved materials and with improved calculation- and development-tools we easily would be able to build cars with actual standard of technology without making them heavier, than they were before.

Nice video - nothing against this.
Only some questions about future and about what we regard to be improvement...
