Two small cars out of 6 rated “Good” in crash tests

Traverse City, Mich. (AP) - Six of 12 small cars did well in front-end crash tests conducted by an insurance industry group, but some popular models fared poorly.

Only the two-door and four-door Honda Civic earned the top rating of "good" in the tests done by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The Dodge Dart, Ford Focus, Hyundai Elantra and the 2014 Scion TC got "acceptable" ratings.

But popular models such as the Chevrolet Cruse and Sonic and the Volkswagen Beetle got "marginal" ratings, while the Nissan Sentra and the Kia Soul and 2014 Kia Forte each were rated "poor."

The Toyota Corolla wasn't tested because a new version is coming out in the fall.

The IIHS tests simulate part of the car's front end hitting a fixed object. They're more stringent than government tests.
