Small cars rate higher in crash test

The latest government crash tests show smaller cars that get high gas mileage are getting a lot safer. None of the 13 small cars tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety were rated poor in any of the four key crash tests.

That's a big turnaround from a few years ago - six of the small cars tested were given the top safety pick award.
