STUDY: Car makers should look closer at front collisions

A new study out from the Institute for Highway Safety says car makers should take a new look at front collisions that target one side of the car or the other.

The institute says that 10,000 people die every year in accidents similar to when a car hits a tree or a pole.

This year the IHS tested similar impacts on 11 luxury cars and only three of them got a good or acceptable rating.

"It represents a problem that is currently not being addressed by most vehicle front crash-worthiness design," David Zuby, chief research officer, said.

The Volvo S60 and Acura TL did the best.

The Infinity G-Series result was acceptable.

The worst was the Lexus 350is.
