IIHS Taps 64 Models as Top Safety Picks for 2018

A total of eleven Toyota and Lexus vehicles are 2018 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK award winners with the new 2018 Camry receiving its highest award the TOP SAFETY PICK These 15 vehicles are IIHS' top safety picks for 2018

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has updated its Top Safety Pick+ requirements to include good-rated headlights and good or acceptable passenger-side protection in small overlap front crashes - and as a result, just 15 vehicles qualify for top honors.

Every year, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety names only a handful of vehicles with its Top Safety Pick+ honor.

Over the last decade, vehicle safety has improved dramatically as automakers recognize that safety is a big selling point. "And Subaru continues to be a standout with four of their vehicles winning Top Safety Pick+". As a whole, foreign models edged out American models for safety.

He says the passenger side crash test was developed "after it became clear that some manufacturers weren't paying enough attention to passenger side protection".

The IIHS is putting more focus on passenger safety this year with the addition of a new small-overlap front passenger crash test.

The institute rates front crash prevention by conducting low- and moderate-speed track tests of vehicles with automatic braking systems.

IIHS assesses a vehicle's crashworthiness with six tests: moderate overlap front, driver-side small overlap front, (new) passenger-side small overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints and seats. The sole Subaru model that did not qualify was the BRZ.

The first official passenger-side ratings were released in October, following research tests previous year.

"What you are seeing with those two companies is they are responding very quickly when they learn new ways to modify their vehicles to protect their customers", Lund said.

"Most drivers when they buy a auto they think the passenger is going to be protected as well as they are".

The Institute's headlight ratings also are relatively new, with the first ones being released in March 2016.
