Although you can never answer that question completely, two major safety organizations have tried to come up with likely collision tests so that consumers can be as informed as possible on how their cars would perform in such a situation.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is a not-for-profit and funded by insurance companies while the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is a government agency. Both conduct front collision, side impact and rollover tests in order to evaluate and rate all vehicles. You can consider how many stars the NHTSA assigns to a car's safety performance to make a buying decision. Five-star vehicles are the safest. The IIHS designates their best performing cars with a Top Safety Pick+ award. The next tier down is awarded the Top Safety Pick award.
