BMW and General Motors are the safest

18:23, 13.11.2010 Region: World News Theme: Car World

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) published the results of crash-tests. Ten models tested on a new protocol NCAP. The new standard came into force in the U.S. for the 2011 model vehicles.

Only few models passed the tighter rules, Autonews.ru reports.  Two Toyota Camry models - gasoline and hybrid - could not get more than three stars out of five. Buick Lucerne also got “three”.
Three models from General Motors - Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia, as well as updated Honda Accord got the maximum possible points. In NHTSA recalled that tested earlier this year the first batch of cars has performed less than efficiently. The five stars were awarded to only two bidders - BMW 5-Series and the Hyundai Sonata.

Until the end of the year, other 55 models will take new crash-test.
