Crash Test Results for 2012 Models
These three include the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro, 2012 Cadillac CTS, and the 2012 Toyota Camry.
NHTSA instituted new crash test guidelines which took effect for the 2011 model year. These stricter guidelines have resulted in fewer vehicles earning top scores. In fact, only the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro has so far earned a perfect rating across the board.
NHTSA has yet to test an additional 52 vehicles, so we may see more cars added to the perfect score list next year.
So far, here are the current crash test results for model year 2012 vehicles.
