No one likes to think about a car wreck, after all. The Australian New Car Assessment Program wants to remind drivers how far the industry has come, however. The ANCAP set up a crash test with one standard issue 1998 Toyota Corolla and a 2015 Toyota Corolla. Both were and are popular cars on New Zealand and Australian roads. But, ANCAP says drivers are twice as likely to die in a car crash if the vehicle was made before the year...
