This Year's Highest Raters in IIHS Safety Crash Tests

This Year's Highest Raters in IIHS Safety Crash Tests

The 2018 model year cars that earned the coveted ranking, Top Safety Pick+, are the BMW 5 Series, Kia Forte (sedan), Genesis G80, Genesis G90, Hyundai Santa Fe, Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, Lincoln Continental, Kia Soul, Mercedes-Benz E-Class (sedan), Mercedes-Benz GLC, Subaru Impreza, Subaru Legacy, Subaru Outback, Subaru WRX, and Toyota Camry.

A Top Safety Pick Plus vehicle earned a good rating in crash tests and roof strength, and high marks for crash avoidance technology.

Side impact and hits to front on the driver's side are analyzed.

"Doesn't mean that vehicles have gotten less safe, it really just reflects that we've raised the bar", IIHS President Adrian Lund told CBS.

Aberdeen Caretaker Promises Resolution On Rangers Target Derek McInnes Today
Aberdeen coach Paul Sheerin expects the ongoing saga surrounding Derek McInnes' Pittodrie future to be resolved later on Thursday. Under-20s coach Paul Sheerin is understood to be taking his place in front of the media ahead of Friday's match against Dundee .

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

Forty-seven others did earn the lesser Top Safety Pick award. The highly-rated headlights, for example, do not come standard on base models and many vehicles lack crash avoidance technology. "The difference between a headlamp that rates as good as far as how far down the road you can see and one that we rate as poor, it literally is night and day and we think it's important that manufacturers improve how lamps light up the road because the most serious crashes happen at night". Automakers have pledged to make it a standard feature by 2022.

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

Leading the way this year for the most top safety pick plus awards are Hyundai and Subaru.
