  The difference between a 65 and 90km/h crash The IIHS has finalised its results of three crash tests of the same vehicle at different speeds. What happens if you're travelling 25km/h faster when you're in a crash? In the difference performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in North America, there was nearly twice the crash energy at 90km/h compared to 65km/h. For good measure, the IIHS performed a crash with the same vehicle at 80km/h, which showed even just a 15km/h increase can cause a significant difference.
