IIHS Top Safety Pick+
Sport-utility vehicles and crossovers are some of the most popular vehicles in America, and safety is a big concern for shoppers when considering a new vehicle. Every new car sold in America must meet standards mandated by Title 49 of the United States Code, Chapter 301, for motor vehicle safety. While airbags, seat belts and crumple zones keep occupants safe in a crash, technologies available in some new cars work to prevent the crash itself. Those systems vary among automakers — some use radar, others use cameras — but the goal is lessening or avoiding impacts without the need for driver input. For a vehicle to be named a Top Safety Pick + by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, it must earn Good ratings (Good is the highest IIHS rating) in driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests. The vehicle must also earn an Advanced or Superior rating for front crash prevention, as well as a Good headlight rating.
