If I remember correctly, the scoring system just changed and under the one used just a year or two ago today's 3 would be a 5.I saw the sticker on a CRZ today and the safety scores for frontal crashes was pretty poor...3 for front, 2 for side...that's really poor.
Can anyone elaborate or confirm?
It scores a 2 for passenger frontal impacts. That's low..even if the new standards are adjusted.I dunno, looks like 3 out of 5 except for rollovers.

I agree. My insurance agent priced out a Mini Cooper to compare and it was $130 less per year to insure than the CR-Z. I still got the CR-Z though.The crash ratings, and probably some other factors, make the insurance for my CRZ significantly higher than my other cars. People tailgate and come up closer to the rear at stop lights too. I'm glad the car is loaded with air bags!
Interestingly, our CR-Z is less expensive to insure than our TSX was. Still with these ratings, it's possible that we'll see an increase in premiums when we renew.I agree.
