Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Picks

Founded in 1959, the IIHS is the acknowledged leader in determining what works and what doesn't when it comes to reducing injuries in a crash and preventing a crash from occurring in the first place. "Crashworthiness" is based on vehicle performance in high-speed front and side crash tests, a rollover test, plus evaluations of seat and head restraints for protection against neck injuries in rear impacts. A vehicle must receive a "Good" rating in all four tests to earn a Top Safety Pick.
