How strong is your car roof?

US car cos might have to strengthen their car roofs to hold upto 2.5 times the car weight from the current 1.5 times. According to a study conducted by International Institue of Highway Standards in Virginia, such higher standards could bring down fatalities on a single roll over by 20%. I wonder how strong the cars in india are. The old opel astra we had had a strong roof good enough for my nephews to run over that… but i never allowed them to even press their hands against the roof of my maruti suzuki zen… so strong !!
