NHTSA New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) frontal impact:
Crash test dummies representing an average-sized adult male and a small-sized adult female are placed in the driver and front passenger seats, respectively, and are secured with seat belts. Vehicles are crashed into a fixed barrier at 35 mph (56.3km/h), which is equivalent to a head-on collision between two similar vehicles each moving at 35 mph. 1 star is the lowest rating; 5 stars is the highest. More stars equal safer cars.
I am not familiar with New York Daily news. I originally assumed, and it may be, a large media outlet. But this review had small time internet reviewer written all over it. I think the concept of male/female review was neat though.
