In looking for safety data, I looked on the US-DOT website http://www.nhtsa.gov
There were a number of interesting items that are available, and some that I downloaded (the downloads are separate): Pneumatic Tires (700+pages) and paper on rollovers, brochures on 5 star safety ratings and crash avoidance.. There was a whole conference on CAFÉ and GHG standards impact on vehicle mass reduction

Since this is a good segue into emissions. The US Environmental Protection Agency sets
standards on transportation sources of pollution a test is performed on production vehicles Federal Test Procedure or FTP by vehicle class http://epa.gov/otaq/standards/light–duty/ftp.htm
