Safety Pick +
For many car shoppers, safety is a major concern when choosing new models. Most new cars offer high levels of protection, but some offer superior safety. In a crash these vehicles not only protect occupants with features such as airbags, seat belts and crumple zones, many of the safest cars in America have technologies that prevent a crash entirely. To be named an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick+ , new cars must earn Good ratings (Good is the highest IIHS rating) in each of six crash tests: driver-side and passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraint & seats. Qualifying vehicles must also earn an Advanced or Superior rating for front crash prevention in vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian tests, as well as a Good or Acceptable headlight rating.
