Top Auto Safety Picks for 2016

safe cars in 20162016 is upon us, and I thought it would be nice to start the year with the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s Top Safety Picks. The IIHS conducts vehicle tests every year to determine a car’s “crashworthiness,” or how well a vehicle protects its passengers when in a crash. The IIHS has broken down the picks in either a Top Safety Pick or a Top Safety Pick+. In order to be a Top Safety Pick, a vehicle must earn good ratings in the five crashworthiness tests as well as a basic rating for front crash prevention. To qualify for a Top Safety Pick+, a car must earn good ratings in the five crashworthiness tests and an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention. Here are some of the top picks based on vehicle type and size.
