Own a Mazda CX-9 or Honda Pilot? IIHS Has a Horror Movie For You

Mazda Honda Cars

This year, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety started a new crash test, the “small overlap test“. Effectively, this tests what happens when a front corner hits an obstacle, like a light pole or tree. Many, many cars have failed this test, but the videos of the Honda Pilot and Mazda CX-9 may scare you away from driving all day!

Check out the CX-9 crash test:
