IIHS called the dangerous sedans released before 2015May 29, 2020
Machines manufactured before 2015 are popular in the secondary market, but they can be dangerous.
Specialists of the IIHS Institute, which are involved in car safety, told why sedans with a year of manufacture until 2015 can be dangerous. It is noted that these models at the time of their release were tested according to the Euro NCAP and NHTSA methods, but modern tests received one more rule.
in 2012, the brand began testing machines with a small overlap of 25%, which accelerated to a speed of 64 km / h. In this test, the tangential strokes that happen when avoiding a frontal impact are simulated. As part of the test, the machine receives ratings of “good”, “acceptable”, “unsatisfactory” and “bad”.
As a result, it turned out that almost all the popular models of classes A, B and C released in 2012-2013 did not pass the new test.
Worst of all were Mitsubishi Mirage, Nissan Versa, Toyota Prius C, Hyundai Accent and Fiat 500. In addition, Chevrolet Cruze and Chevrolet Aveo sedans and Volkswagen Tiguan crossovers received unsatisfactory ratings. Also bad grades went to the premium and Mercedes C-Class, BMW 3 Series and Audi A4.
