But what is being proven? All identical? Some better than others?
Personally, in my opinion, this test is silly. Now that all cars meet the IIHS offset test, this is the only way for them to 'stay relevant'. So now, our cars are going to become even heavier to make the grade in this test. Because if you don't, you will not even be considered by consumers. Wait for the first manufacturer to tout this in their advertisments, once that occurs, it will become industry standard. Sad.
Lesson here: Don't want to be in a Camry or Prius V in an small overlap crash....
i'd rather push my malibu than drive a toyota.
strange things are afoot at the circle k.
Is it just me or does it seem like the Malibu didn't do too well, either? Not many did...
A fan of the finest things in life.
Please tell me they did some flaming burnouts and some sweet drifting action before they destroyed these cars
2004 Chevrolet Silverado 4x4 RCLB , 4.3 liter v6 5 speed .
1993 Ford F250HD 4x2 RCLB , 300 six cylinder C6 auto .
the Suzuki did really well.
how muck heavier is the Accord VS the Camry? as the Camry would KILL you and the accord MIGHT save your life
Doesn't look like anyone did all that well, but one observation I made was that for the most part, it was easy to tell newer models from older ones.
One thing I noticed was that regardless of how well the Accord coupe would have done, when the wheel spun like that, your face is going to be ripped to pieces. Didn't look pleasant.
Looks like all of the cars/test dummies took a beating as expected with a drivers side impact like that.. Tough test.
Memo to self. ...don't get in an accident.
