looks like the srt-4 has four stars driver, four stars passenger while the wrx got four stars driver, five stars passenger in frontal.
not too bad.
i did just get to see a brand new wrx wagon hit pretty hard on the passenger side, and it held up quite well.
the safety is one of the reasons i was happy to move from a neon to a wrx, but i've seen some badly wrecked neons and they hold up OK for the most part.
there's one thing our cars won't save you from, collision with an SUV. did anyone see the crash tests of cars vs. SUVs after they beefed them up to pass the 5mph bump test? and SUVs always have the *best* drivers. something needs to be done with these things.
