How Does IIHS Determine Its Winners?

Since 2006, IIHS has been testing vehicles for their safety features and safety ratings. They test crashworthiness, vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations, front crash prevention, vehicle-to-vehicle evaluations, headlights, and much more. To earn the TOP SAFETY PICK+ or TOP SAFETY PICK awards, vehicles have to earn a 'Good' rating it each of the six crashworthiness tests, 'Advanced' or 'Superior' ratings in front crash prevention, vehicle-to-vehicle evaluation, and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluation. The 'Plus' is added when the vehicle also receives a 'Good' or 'Acceptable' rating in headlights.
