Hands protecting a little carHow does a vehicle win a top safety award?

The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) is an independent group that is focused on bringing down the number of losses and deaths caused by car accidents. The group decided to give away various safety awards to help incentivize car companies to make safer vehicles.

There are actually two possible awards that can be given to a vehicle. They are Top Safety Pick and Top Safety Pick Plus awards. To be chosen as a Top Safety Pick, a vehicle must meet the following criterion: acceptable or good rating for headlights, and passenger-side small overlap front test; good ratings in driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints; and advanced or superior in front crash prevention. To be chosen as a Top Safety Pick Plus, the vehicle must meet the following criterion: good rating for headlights, driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints; and advanced or superior in front crash prevention.
