What Makes a Top Safety Pick+?

When the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety receives a new vehicle, they put it through a comprehensive round of crash tests designed to qualify the amount of protection it offers. If a vehicle performs well—meeting or exceeding each of the qualifications listed below—it will be named as a Top Safety Pick+! This coveted designation is only given out to a handful of vehicles this year, but it should come as no surprise that Honda’s models frequently land in the winner’s circle.

  • A ‘Good’ rating in Driver-Side Small Overlap Front collisions and Moderate Overlap Front collisions.
  • A ‘Good’ rating in Side, Roof Strength, and Head Restraint tests.
  • An ‘Acceptable’ or better rating in Passenger-Side Small Overlap collisions
  • Available ‘Advanced’ or ‘Superior’ Front Crash Protection Systems
  • Available Headlights with a ‘Good’ Rating
