Here in the U.S. the International Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) is in charge of crash testing any and every car that could be on an American roadway. The IIHS crash testing is widely regarded as some of, if not the tops in the entire industry, subjecting cars to brutal crashes with stationary walls and objects to simulate many different types of situations a motorist could get into.
For the first time, IIHS took 3 pieces of Americana motoring in the Mustang, Challenger, and Camaro and subjected them to their battery of tests. They aren’t pretty. Here are the cringe worthy crashes from the IIHS itself, as well as the ratings.
Now the Mustang and the Camaro get decent ratings, but the Challenger falls short. The Mustang seems to be the closest one to a top safety pick out of the 3. Just something else Mustang owners can lord over the rest when at a weekend meet.
