Crash avoidance systems ratings

Posted: Updated:

A well-known highway safety group releases its test results on the latest in crash avoidance systems today.

The Insurance Institute for Safety in Charlottesville has been doing crash tests for almost twenty years, but this is the first time it's been able to test out collision avoidance systems.

It checks for how quick drivers are warned about possibly hitting the car in front of them, and if there are automatic brakes in a particular model, how quickly the brakes kick in to slow down the car.

Seven models were given a superior rating, Subaru Legacy, Subaru Outback, Cadillac ATS, Cadillac SRX, as well as the Mercedes C-Class, Volvo S60, and Volvo XC60.
