4 Cars that Failed New Crash Tests
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.
