A new round of crash tests finds many small cars don’t perform well on front-end collisions.

The Honda Civic received the top tanking of “good” from the insurance institute for highway safety.

For the first time, the group tested how the front corners of small cars hold up during a collision.

The Doge Dart, Ford Focus, Hyundai Elentra and the 2014 Scion TC all received acceptable ratings.

The Chevrolet Sonic, Volkswagon Beetle, Chevrolet Cruze, Nissan Sentra, KIA Soul and the 2014 KIA Forte all received marginal or poor ratings.

The agency, however, says drivers of those cars should not be too concerned.
