Some new crash test videos got posted up to YouTube. The first video looks brutal, very painful for the driver.

That top video: notice how the angle of the impact caused the front driver wheel to be pushed into the cabin and making the dashboard put out. It made the steering wheel airbag move out of place which prevented protecting the drivers impact and not stopping any projecting objects to the driver.

crumple zone did its job, which is why it still got a 5-star rating.

★★★★☆ | Frontal
★★★★★ | Side
★★★★☆ | Rollover

The videos that I've seen where the point of impact is that far off-center (like in the first video) it seems the passenger compartment always deforms quite a bit. This was the first time I've seen the steering wheel and airbag move out of the way, making a clear path to smack the dashboard. I'm not posting these to say it did bad, I just like to see crash testing videos.
