    These European cars are amazingly safe in terms of drivers escaping even after facing extreme conditions.

    Yesterday this linea came to TASS ABS motors on a towing van.Got chance to talk with the owner as per him a speeding truck suddenly stopped and he rammed his linea behind that truck @ speed of 40-50 kmph.Car is damaged a lot and airbag was not deployed,may be the speed was less and airbags couldn't inflate.

    Let us not judge with looking in to the deformation on bonnet. The airbag might have set to activate for a high speed collisions. Car's speed was 40-50 kmph.

    Legally, the vehicle which rear-ends another vehicle will be accounted for the collision. Here, in this case, I would put the fault on the Linea driver. He should have maintained a safe distance to tackle any sudden breaking.
