The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety just released its Top Safety Pick awards for 2010, listed below. To earn a Top Safety Pick, cars have to score the agency’s best rating in frontal-, side- and rear-impact tests, plus a new roof-strength test. Each car must also have an electronic stability system.
With the new roof-strength test added to Top Safety Pick requirements, IIHS has significantly cut the number of models that earn its top award. For more information, see the KickingTires article “Harder Rules Equal Fewer IIHS' Top Safety Picks.”
