4 Cars that Failed New Crash Tests

Up until now, car safety tests have not included a simulated offset crash into a tree, pole, or another vehicle.

These types of crash tests are important because they account for 25% of frontal crashes that cause serious injury or death in the real world.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has now begun simulating this crash test. So far, they've tested 11 luxury vehicles, and there were some surprising results.

Four of the vehicles failed the test - the 2012 Mercedes Benz C-Class, Audi A4, Lexus IS 250/350, and Lexus ES.

Below are the full results of the 11 crash tests performed so far. The KickingTires blog has a good analysis of the new crash tests and how they impact overall ratings.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect
