Kudos to IIHS for making this test that represents a closer reality of crash test.
Also kudos to a to Acura, Volvo and Infiniti.
It appears other carmakers including BMW are caught by surprise on this and how even Mercedes dares to complain of this new test not being fair, is it because they are hurt by this truth.
Should we be happy that BMW came slightly better than Mercedes and Audi, NO.
BMW disappointed because dud not score high where we all expected.
To all their engineers who contributed to this failure the message is: back to the drawing board.
Or perhaps it is not the engineers fault but of those modern smart executives who bring fresh cost cutting ideas that result to inferior cars we get now.
This -MAKE IT CHEAPER- is not just in automotive industry, it is happening in all other fields.
