Puny Ponies? Muscle Cars in Crash Tests

We love to look at ’em, and we definitely love to drive ’em but when it comes to safety standards – are we really that aware? USA Today dove into whether our beloved rides are equipped to keep us safe. Between the Mustang, Camaro and Challenger, not one qualified for Top Safety Pick honors. Here’s what the tests concluded:

Mustang: Earned good ratings on all five main categories except small overlap front, in which it received an acceptable mark, and received a basic rating in front crash prevention.

Camaro: Received good ratings on all five main categories except roof strength, in which it received an acceptable mark, but did not receive a rating for front crash prevention.

Challenger: Received good ratings in moderate overlap front and side, acceptable ratings in roof strength and head restraints and seats, and a marginal rating in small overlap front.

So despite the facts, is this going to keep you from jumping behind the wheel of your favorite ride? At the very least, we’re not gonna call them puny ponies.
