The Caliber has a really beefy structure, so I suspect the upcoming torso airbag will raise its side rating to "good." The Optima will be tested later (side crash), since Kia is making a few design changes; I'm expecting an "acceptable" rating.

why is the mazda 6 and all its variants so poor in side crash testing?

Ford, that's unacceptable.

Time for GM to toute the good rating by the Malibu vs the camry & accord.
