Something that I always waited for. Simple crash tests are misleading.

I wouldn't want to discuss car design with females and people with rear spoilers unless the spoiler is stock.

This is something I've been saying for years, but the hippies and ghetto rats aren't interested. If all round safety is a high priority, there is NO OTHER type of vehicle that competes with a full size or mid size sedan. No rolly poly 4WDs, no compromised wagons, no little tin cans, no crumple zone-less trucks. A good small sedan like the Lancer is passable, but nothing smaller. The likes of the Fit have basically no rear crash protection for example. Buyer beware.
