IIHS family vehicle crash-test ratings released for 2013

December 20, 2012 12:00:00 AM PST
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety put 18 mid-sized family cars through a new safety test, replicating what happens when the front corner of a vehicle hits something such as a tree or another car.

Family sedans have outperformed most luxury models in the new crash test.

America's most popular car, the Toyota Camry, earned a "poor" rating.

Only three of 11 luxury models earned a "good" or "acceptable" rating.

Thirteen family cars earned the distinction of "Top Safety Pick Plus."
