    A new crash-test focusing on a front corner impact, which is apparently the leading remaining cause of vehicle deaths, has revealed serious deficiencies in Merc, Audi and Lexus. S was not part of the test yet. Should we guess that it would ace this with its unique front crumple zone advantage? If so, perhaps TM should make a point of highlighting this?
