What do the BMW 5-series, Buick Lacrosse and Lucerne, Cadillac CTS, STS and DTS, Infiniti M35 and the Jaguar X-Type all have in common?
They’re all amongst the cars most likely to leave you with a bad neck in the event of a rear-ender up to 20mph.
New IIHS test results for 2007 models have just been released. Those uppercrust brands above were found wanting in an area that’s one of the most common causes of motoring injuries. Once again the Saab 9-3 is amongst those with the top rating of ‘good’.
Of course, we all know this pretty well. We’ve been living with Saab safety for a long time now and it’s more than just a bonus for buying smart, it’s an expectation.
Here’s hoping that Saab USA promote it. And I wonder how long it’ll be before we see Caddy’s with Saab’s SAHR technology?
