TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - US insurance organization awards its Top Safety Pick honor to 71 vehicles

From 39 vehicles in 2014, 71 vehicles have been given the Top Safety Pick and the Top Safety Pick+ awards for 2015 by the United States' Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

To be eligible for the Top Safety Pick award, a vehicle must have a good or acceptable rating in the small overlap front crash test and a good rating in each of the Institute's four other crashworthiness evaluations (moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints).

To qualify for the Top Safety Pick+ award, a vehicle must stop or slow down without driver input "before hitting a target in IIHS tests at 20kph, 40kph or both."

"This is the third year in a row that we are giving automakers a tougher challenge to meet," said IIHS president Adrian Lund. "The quest for Top Safety Pick and Top Safety Pick+ awards is driving improvement in the small overlap front crash test, and getting manufacturers to offer automatic braking technology on more and more vehicles."

In total, there are 38 Top Safety Pick and 33 Top Safety Pick+ awadees.
