    I wonder how Honda will approach their claim to safety after this release? (Inside humor here) It seems the Koreans are pulling ahead of the auto game in every category when it comes to compact bang for the buck; including safety beyond other of its size. Very Impressive....
    I was car shock in 2009 when I researching for a safe compact vehicle for my two teenage daughters to drive to and from High School while living here in dangerous Southern California (where more than 25 percent of the local drivers should have their license revoke for life) when drove the last remaining compact Kia (Rondo) which has 10-airbags. I looked at the Honda and Toyota laugh at the claim safety.
    I can only imagine what the Koreans will bring to the auto table in the next five years versus what the Japanese?

    Lets face it, the automakers are all out to kill us off, deliberately making death trap cars, hoping that they will be the last to go.... Not!
    The article hardly mentions the fact that most of these cars were designed long before the current safety tests were available

    Are all these tests equally important? It seems everybody is now scoring great on the older crash tests, and now focus is moving toward more rare events such as crashing against a tree moving sideways.
