IIHS has published the list of the safest cars in 2019May 25, 2019
According to the results of his research, the American Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) identified the safest cars. Of the 30 cars included in the Top Safety Pick + rating, only two are truly safe.
The US Insurance Institute for Highway Safety conducts a series of tests with new cars and assigns them the appropriate ratings. You’ve probably heard how various automakers advertise that their cars have received awards such as the Top Safety Pick or Top Safety Pick +. This means that these vehicles were included in the final IIHS rating and they can trust their safety.
Specialists of the insurance institute of road safety conduct numerous studies of the vehicle, ranging from impact resistance to the effectiveness of available safety systems.
As you can imagine, the criteria for achieving the highest rating (Top Safety Pick +) developed along with ever-changing automotive technologies, and in 2019 IIHS awarded its highest award to only 30 cars. However, not all so simple…
It is noteworthy that most of these cars require additional equipment in order to rightfully be in this rating. In some cases, the required items may only be available on fully equipped and much more expensive models. As an example, the 2019 Hyundai Sonata sedan is presented in a limited Top-top configuration with the selected “package” Ultimate Package.
In fact, out of 30 vehicles that IIHS called the winners of the Top Safety Pick + rating in 2019, only two can be distinguished that are truly worthy of this title, regardless of equipment or additional equipment. This Honda Insight, which costs from 22 930 dollars, as well as the premium sedan Genesis G90, the starting price of which is 70 000 dollars.
