None of them did particularly well, but the Mustang DID do the best of the three. That small overlap crash test is, for sure, a scary one to watch on almost every vehicle they do it to.

I disagree. I think the challenger did the best with the mustang coming in second .

Nope.....if you can find the actual ratings, with the color coded icons and supporting documentation, the Challenger did (by FAR) the worst, with "significant" injuries to the driver's lower legs and feet.........
Here is one link that stated the Challenger is in need of serious improvement in crash worthiness.....

Can't argue with that. I was focusing on the head area. Didn't know I could potentially loose a foot if I were to crash the challenger. Like u said they're all pretty bad.

Or maybe if you plan to crash don't aim the edge of the car at the totally immovable object!!!

Good thing mustangs are known for hitting movable objects that tend to be a crowd of people

I like to see what happens if you throw a smart car into the wall at the same speed

It's got a very strong cage around the passengers just not much in the way of energy absorbing crush area

Did you even watch to whole video? If you like your legs, don't wreck in Challenger as they do in the small over lap test

Stang was rated the best of the three, not getting the top safety status b/c of the small overlap test is rated acceptable, not good. Video is showing exactly that.
