Are Muscle Cars Safe?

2 of 10

Ford Mustang

Of the three muscle cars tested, the Mustang scores the highest for safety. According to the IIHS, “The Mustang is just one good rating away from earning Top Safety Pick.” In the crash evaluation, the Mustang receives top ratings for side impact, roof strength, head restraints, and moderate front overlap. However, the Mustang falls short in small overlap crash testing. Added in 2012, this test replicates what happens when a vehicle runs off the road and hits a tree or pole.
