Lets take your examples for instance. I can take all the titles of the videos you posted and without even watching them disprove you.
Your first video takes a 1992
Civic Coupe and we all know that older cars lack the saftey features and designs commonly found today. And it's up against a 4x4, it's obviously going to win. I bet if you take a 4x4 to a Mercedes-Benz that you will get similar restults.
2006 Civic maintained a 5 star NHTSA side impact rating....nice try.
The third video displays just about the same result you get with just about any high crash saftey rating car. Want to see?
Here, even found a Mercedes:

2005 Honda Odyessy...also maintains a 5 star crash rating overall for occupant safety in all areas of collision.
From the given pattern, it appears to me that you base how good a car is by the way it feels and the way a car looks after a collision. You can't do that.
And a Hummer crashing into a Civic...gee, that's quite obvious. That's like crashing a lorry into a motorcyclist and then commenting "Oh man, that guy died after being hit by that lorry...that motorcycle and helmet are crap because they didn't save him."
Oh, I don't see you bashing a Renault Megane...It's more cheaply made than a Honda Civic and has cheaper fits and finishings yet still maintains to be one of Europe's safest family hatches, maintaining a 5 star rating in European's comparisons.

Same thing with a Renault Espace...it's the safest people carrier out on the market in Europe and is made with loads of cheap plastics and is more of a tin can than a Honda Odyssey.
And our beloved Mercs can also be tin cans. In 2003, a 1999 Mercedes C-Class in Euro NCAP ratings was a 2 star car....
