Hyundai and Subaru Earn the Most IIHS Top Safety Picks for 2018

07 December, 2017, 20:36 | Author: Darnell Taylor
  • 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

No minivans or pickup trucks received a Top Safety Pick Plus award.

Another 47 vehicles earned the next-tier Top Safety Pick award with Toyota producing the most vehicles on that list, followed by Hyundai with nine.

"We've been doing small overlap frontal crash tests on the driver's side since 2012 and we've seen a lot of improvement on that side but we weren't seeing that kind of for passengers", said IIHS President Adrian Lund.

Every year, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) conducts crash tests to determine the safety of vehicles hitting the market for the upcoming model year.

The 2018 list of the safest vehicles is out, and just 15 earned the highest rating, down from 69 a year ago.

New model-year 2018 vehicles to earn the plus designation include the BMW 5 Series; Genesis G80 and G90; Hyundai Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport; Kia Forte sedan and Soul; Lincoln Continental; Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan and GLC; Subaru Impreza, WRX, Legacy and Outback; and Toyota Camry. The highly-rated headlights, for example, do not come standard on base models and many vehicles lack crash avoidance technology. But this year the group added a new test: Crashes to the front on the passenger side.

"Most drivers when they buy a vehicle they think the passenger is going to be protected as well as they are, our new test is to try to achieve that", said IIHS President Adrian Lund. "Manufacturers have been taking this issue seriously since we first shed light on it, and we're confident that good small overlap protection will become the norm on the passenger side, just as it has on the driver side". Automakers have pledged to make it a standard feature by 2022. All but one of the seven vehicles in Subaru's lineup, the BRZ, qualified for one of the awards. And this year the IIHS is making the criteria more hard for automakers to earn a top grade.
