The ADAC Strikes Again!

Edward Niedermeyer

Having run Brilliance out of Europe, the ADAC had to look elsewhere for this latest bit of YouTube entertainment. And how did they find their shocking footage du jour? By running an ESP-less French compact “tallboy” wagon (specifically, the Citroen Nemo) through its infamous “Moose Test.” But don’t worry too much Citroen: past Moose Test failures include the Mercedes A Class, the Renault Kangoo, and Toyota HiLux.

    Propaganda against a French car coming from Germany's ADAC... Color me surprised.

      They tipped the car over by turning the steering wheel. I really can't see how that could be called "propaganda." Also, the first car ever to fail the moose test was a German Mercedes A-class - and it was seriously redesigned to increase stability. Perhaps the French should just do the same?

    The car doesn't have to be redesigned. The French only have to put ABS on their cars to fix the problem. The Fiat Qubo has ABS and it is standard on every Qubo. The french with their Peugeot Bipper and Citroën Nemo didn't even offer ABS, but they will soon offer ABS as standard.

    I don't see 3 cars... I see 1 car with different options and random branding stickers...
