1959 Chevrolet Bel Air vs. 2009 Chevrolet Malibu IIHS crash test
IIHS 50th anniversary demonstration test • September 9, 2009
In the 50 years since US insurers organized the Insurance Institute for
Highway Safety, car crashworthiness has improved. Demonstrating this was a
crash test conducted between a 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air and a 2009 Chevrolet
Malibu. In a real-world collision similar to this test, occupants of the
new model would fare much better than in the vintage Chevy.
"It was night and day, the difference in occupant protection," says
Institute president Adrian Lund. "What this test shows is that automakers
don't build cars like they used to. They build them better."
The crash test was conducted at an event to celebrate the contributions of
auto insurers to highway safety progress over 50 years. Beginning with the
Institute's 1959 founding, insurers have maintained the resolve,
articulated in the 1950s, to "conduct, sponsor, and encourage programs
designed to aid in the conservation and preservation of life and property
from the hazards of highway accidents."

Small overlap front crash tests
ARLINGTON, Va. — Twenty-two vehicles earn the Insurance Institute for
Highway Safety's highest safety award for 2014, TOP SAFETY PICK+, thanks to
a high level of protection in crashes and the availability of front crash
prevention technology to avoid many collisions in the first place. An
additional 17 earn TOP SAFETY PICK by meeting the crashworthiness criteria
IIHS is using new criteria for the awards this year. TOP SAFETY PICK
requires good performance in the Institute's moderate overlap front, side,
roof strength and head restraint tests and, for the first time, good or
acceptable performance in the small overlap front test introduced in 2012.
The same level of performance in those tests, along with at least a basic
rating for front crash prevention, is required for the higher accolade, TOP

Ford F150 and Honda Civic frontal crash test by IIHS
When large, truck-based SUVs collide with passenger cars or minivans, the
results can be devastating for the occupants of the latter.
But fatalities in such accidents are on the decrease in the United States
thanks to measures employed by automakers. Traffic deaths are down 64
percent since the year 2000 due to changes in automobile design such as
lower bumpers for SUVs and better-protect cabin cells for passenger cars.
In 2000, the death rate for car and minivan passengers in collisions with
trucks or SUVs was 44 deaths per million. That came down to 16 deaths per
million by 2009.
The study was conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, a
private-sector group based in Arlington, Virginia.
"By working together, the automakers got life-saving changes done quickly,"
said Joe Nolan, the institute's chief administrative officer.
