Default 2015 Lexus RC Got Excellent Result in IIHS Crash Tests

I was looking at the IISH site and read that the Lexus RC coupes roof strength can withstand close to 20,000 lbs and had one of the best side impact tests results i've ever seen. This is a huge stride for Lexus, keeping their competitors on their toes!

I wrote an article on it, please visit http://blogs.youwheel.com/2015/01/18...s-crash-tests/. I hope you enjoy.

Hopefully, no one is going to crash one. :/

That's awesome because I'm positive my 2IS would crumple like a beer can, which is why I rely on its quick reflexes to get me out of harms way

While it is a nice stride for Lexus, I really don't think the competitors are on the toes because of the crash ratings. Especially from a coupe.
