Thirty-eight models top the list of the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety’s new 2017 safety rankings.
The awards are based on crash tests, and the availability of things like anti-collision technology as well as headlight performance. The organization’s list of 2017 models that receive the top Safety Pick Plus designation includes seven with good rated headlights and 21 with standard auto-braking systems.
Toyota/Lexus lead the pack with nine 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK+ winners, which includes the updated Toyota Corolla. Honda and its Acura division pick up five TOP SAFETY PICK+ awards.
