Each year, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety rates cars, trucks, and SUVs sold in the United States in a number of categories including crashworthiness, crash avoidance and mitigation, and child seat anchors.

In each of those categories, there are subsets of ratings that take a closer look at things like the how the vehicle performs in six different types of crash tests, how well the vehicle's headlights perform, and how easy it is to use the child seat LATCH connections.

Clicking through on each set of ratings will reveal a more detailed look at the types of injuries that were measured, distance illuminated, and location of LATCH connections, among other information. You'll also see a variety of photos from the IIHS crash tests.

If there are no major structural or technical changes to a vehicle from model year to model year, the results carry over.

The ratings below include the most up-to-date information as of February 20, 2020.

Please note, the Jeep Gladiator has not yet been tested by IIHS. Nissan's 2020 Titan has also not yet been tested.

Nuts & Bolts

 
 

Famed puzzle maker Ravesburger has created a new Lamborghini-themed 3D puzzle.

The Lamborghini Huracán EVO is the most successful V10-powered Lamborghini ever. Now, the supercar is getting the Ravensburger 3D puzzle treatment. The 3D jigsaw puzzle faithfully replicates the Huracán EVO V10 car in a 1:18 scale.

The puzzle is mounted to a replica chassis. Lamborghini fans will be able to pick out the car's signature Y-style front bumper and Y-shaped embedded in the headlights. It also has the hexagonal details of the traditionally sized Lambo and wears a Arancio Xanto orange paint job. The low-slug profile of the puzzle gives it volume though it measures just 26 cm in length.

Ravensburger is making the puzzle available with 32 high-quality feature accessories, such as the axles and four rotating wheels that faithfully replicate the Aesir rims found on the real car, along with front splitter and rear diffuser.

The puzzle contains 108 numbered pieces.

Ravesnburger recommends that the puzzle is best for adults and children ages 8 and older. It is sold in Europe for €34.99. In the U.S., a Lamborghini Huracán EVO goes for upwards of $208,000.

Earlier this year, Lamborghini bounced that it had pattered with Lego to create the Lego Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37Lamborghini Sián FKP 37. That model includes a V12 engine; a moveable rear spoiler; front and rear suspension; and steering powered by a wheel complete with the Automobili Lamborghini badge. There's also scissor doors, which open to reveal the intricately recreated cockpit, with a fully-functioning eight-speed sequential gearbox controlled by a movable paddle gearshift.

Lego also sells LEGO Technic versions of the 2020 Land Rover Defender and Nissan GT-R. Additionally, LEGO recently started selling a replica of Dom's Chargerfrom the "Fast & Furious" franchise. Additionally, a Ducati motorcycle model was recently sold by the company.

They're used to taking it to the mat, but this autumn, the stars of the WWE will be taking to the internet as part of a partnership with Hyundai to produce a 10-episode video series that features storytelling centered around the passion for enriching people's lives. "Drive For Better" will appear on WWE's digital platforms throughout the second half of the year.

"As an official sponsor of WWE, we are excited to be working together to share the personal stories of the Superstars and help put a smile on people's faces," said Angela Zepeda, CMO, Hyundai Motor America. "We both believe everyone deserves better and this series is representative of that."

"WWE and Hyundai's shared passion for supporting local communities truly makes this a rewarding partnership," said John Brody, Executive Vice President and Global Head of Sales & Partnerships, WWE. "We are extremely grateful to Hyundai for their commitment and hope this series will inspire people across the country at a time when it's needed most."

The first episode of the series features WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and his recent virtual visit with patients at the Children's Hospital of Orange County. It debuted in July and is posted on WWE's digital platforms and the Superstars' social media channels along with other episodes in the series.

The series is part of a larger partnership between Hyundai and WWE. The two brands have delivered custom content integrations across WWE's global media platforms throughout 2020. Hyundai is also the Co-Presenting Partner of WWE Clash of Champions on Sunday, September 27 and will receive weekly exposure in Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown programming throughout the month of September.

In addition to the episodic programming, the partnership will work to promote Hyundai Hope On Wheels during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Hyundai Hope on Wheels is a charitable organization that recently provided millions of dollars in grants to aid with COVID-19 testing.
