If you need to crash a vehicle into an offset barrier at 40 MPH, then eight of the new large sedans on the market would likely allow you to walk away from such an accident. The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety crashed the Kia Amanti, Chrysler 300, Buick LaCrosse, Ford Five Hundred, Toyota Avalon, Cadillac STS, Acura RL, and Lexus GS. All of these vehicles received a "good" rating, with the crash-test dummy recording measurements indicative of only minor injuries. It's good to see the automakers putting all that metal to good use, as in the past large sedans haven't always performed so well (the Chrysler 300M and Cadillac Seville had previously done poorly in this type of test).
