Starting with the 2020 model year, the IIHS added an additional requirement for a vehicle to gain distinction as an IIHS Top Safety Pick+. To earn this top award, a vehicle must be available exclusively with Good or Acceptable headlights on all trim variants. The car companies paid attention and for 2021 there are more than 50 new vehicles that earned the Top Safety Pick+ rating — more than double the number of top-rated vehicles in 2020. “With these awards, we want to make it easy for consumers to find vehicles that provide good protection in crashes, sufficient lighting and effective front crash protection,” said IIHS President David Harkey. “Manufacturers have stepped up to meet the challenge, and the list of great options has grown to an impressive size this year,” Harkey noted. Here are the 2021 and 2022 models that earn a Top Safety Pick + rating.
