IIHS Top Vehicle Safety Picks Of 2021
Car Safety Ratings for 2021 Vehicles
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety provides vehicle ratings each year using high-speed front and side crash tests to determine vehicle safety. The IIHS rates vehicles good, acceptable, marginal, or poor based on performance in high-speed front and side crash tests, a rollover test, plus evaluations of seat/head restraints for protection against neck injuries in rear impacts. Car ratings for vehicles not specified below, as well as prior years' top picks, can be found on the IIHS website.
To qualify for a 2021 Top Safety Pick+, a vehicle must earn good ratings in five crashworthiness tests—small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints—as well as a basic rating for front crash prevention.
