What is the IIHS Top Safety Award and how to Qualify?
To qualify for the Top Safety Pick award, a vehicle needs to earn good ratings across the many tests that the IIHS holds. These tests check the safety of several locations of the vehicle, including driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, the sides, the roof strength, and more! In addition, testing vehicles also need to have an advanced or superior rating for both front crash prevention as well as a good or acceptable headlight rating.
The tests are thorough and in-depth, making sure that you know what vehicles offer the best possible safety while on the road!
