Similar to the recent testing AAA did on pedestrian detection testing on the midsize 2019 Chevy Malibu, 2019 Honda Accord, 2019 Tesla Model 3, and 2019 Toyota Camry, the IIHS just completed and released test results for those 4 cars plus 12 more models.

Interestingly, some models offer both standard and optional crash prevention systems, and the IIHS tested both configurations.
- Mercedes C-Class optional system scored better than the standard system
- BMW 3 series standard system scored better than their optional (enhanced) system
- Chevy Malibu's optional systems (2 formats) scored low

They also tested both the Nissan Altima and the Nissan Maxima as 'midsize' cars. Despite being the same brand (and presumably system/design?), the Maxima's system scored higher than the Altima's.

The poorest-performing systems among those tested were the 2019-20 Ford Fusion, 2019 Hyundai Sonata, and 2019 Kia Optima.
