It has more to do with insurance. If the car does not pass the 5 mph test then it will be a write-off in a minor bumper accident. If it passes then there is less of a liability with the insurance companies. In Canada the bumper laws used to be at 8 mph until the law was harmonized to Euro and US standards.

I believe many parts of a plane are also glued together rather than welded/riveted.

Honda claims the body is 50% more rigid than the previous Japan-only DC5 Integra Type R, and the new model features an independent rear suspension rather than the torsion beam configuration used on the latest European Civic Type-R.[2] To save weight, aluminum is used extensively and bonded with adhesive instead of welded.

This is something I can see myself buying my mother, strangely enough. I'd imagine it'd be even easier to drive than a Corolla.
