22 New Cars Ranked Top Safety Pick Plus By IIHS
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has made the requirements for its Top Safety Pick Plus award more stringent for 2014, awarding it to just 22 vehicles.
To qualify for the Top Safety Pick Plus award a vehicle needs to get the highest rating of “good” in the moderate overlap frontal, side impact, roof strength and rear crash tests, must earn a score of “good” or acceptable in the small overlap frontal crash test which imitates an impact with a tree or light pole at 40 mph, and must include front crash protection technology that will either warn a driver of an impending crash or automatically apply the brakes.
Of the 22 cars that qualified for the Top Safety Pick Plus award, Honda (along with Acura) had the most with five. Mazda, Subaru and Volvo each had three vehicles that earned Top Safety Pick Plus honors.
