NHTSA Crash Tests: Frontal and Side

Side impact with pole:

I especially like that the window wipers are tested to make sure they work after the side impact. Whimsical.

Edit: Nevermind, looks like the wipers came on from the impact. Not as whimsical. Really digging the matte white interior, though.

If you go to IIHS' website, they have measurements for everything. You can compare against other vehicles. I believe the S90 and Model S are good benchmarks to look at.
Only compare with cars of same weight.
I.e., A heavier car that doesn't perform great in crash tests still tends to do better in a collision with a lighter car since it won't decelerate as quickly.
