See it is the outgoing model they were testing. Shame seeing cars destroyed like that, but a necessary evil I guess.

The 2021 YA model is the same base chassis. Except for the tailgate changes, the plastics of the front and rear bumpers are the only cosmetic changes externally. The underlying chassis and construction will be the same for both so the tests here would be relevant. The cars they send for testing are, I've been told, vehicles with cosmetic blemishes but still sound safety wise.

In the final shots from inside the cabin you can see the door cards and pillar panels are not the same as those in the shipping models so they probably add cheaper items that have the same structural integrity but don't have the higher cost (i.e. they dan't have the faux leather facings etc.).
