The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released its first batch of 2012 model-year ratings this month, and the Chevy Camaro, cadillac CTS and Toyota Camry were all tested. Their scoring system is comprised of ive-star ratings for frontal, rollover and a combined side-pole and barrier tests.
Under the new and more rigorous testing conditions, the 2012 Camry got f five stars in the side crash test and four in the front crash and rollover tests. The good results are a direct consequence of the high-strength steel construction, which reduces deformation of the passenger compartment.

“We are very pleased that the all-new 2012 Camry has earned a five-star composite safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA),” Toyota said. “The fact that the Camry earned this five-star overall score after enduring a more rigorous NHTSA testing procedure targeted at raising the bar for overall vehicle safety is testament to the strong design, and safety-focused engineering consumers can expect in the nation’s top-selling car.”

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
