    Why no mention of the Tesla Model S? It literally defeated the test equipment for the rollover test. Top ratings across the board.

    You’ll need that crash protection when the Chevy’s ignition turns off in the middle of driving.

    of course Honda has the most cars.

  • Jason Siu

    The reason why the Tesla Model S isn’t on the list is because it has not been tested by IIHS and the agency has no plans to do so.

    Yep, we should all drive rolling diaper pails. Nothing says exciting like a minivan. No matter how many sparks they shower it with in a commercial, it’s still a minivan. A jack of all trades…a master of none. By the way, they crash test these vehicles without anything in them. All of that loose crap in the cabin with you and your kids tends to kill as well. More space, more crap.
