The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is an independent, nonprofit scientific and educational organization with the mission of reducing motor vehicle crash-related fatalities, injuries, and property damage through research, evaluation, and education of the public, decision-makers, and safety experts.
The Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI), a sister organization of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), is a private nonprofit organization that receives funding from vehicle insurance providers.
The IIHS's goal is to lessen the harm caused by auto accidents. They focus on lowering both property damage and fatalities and injuries. By conducting research and writing reports on crashworthiness, crash avoidance, and highway design, they carry out this purpose. For both the driver and passenger sides, IIHS testing includes side, roof strength, head restraint, moderate overlap front, and small overlap front collision tests. Additionally, the effectiveness of the headlights and the availability of front accident prevention systems are evaluated. A vehicle receives one of the following marks after each test: Poor, Marginal, Acceptable, or the best attainable score of Good.
The HLDI examines the data on auto and other vehicle insurance losses. The group can evaluate the efficacy of collision avoidance and injury prevention technology by compiling data from the majority of insurers.
What It Means to Be a Top Safety Pick
A new car must receive Good ratings in all IIHS crash tests, including the passenger-side small overlap front test, in order to be named a Top Safety Pick (a new addition for 2020). Also required are ratings of Advanced or Superior for front collision avoidance and Acceptable or Good for headlight performance from the vehicle. Some trims may receive a lower rating if outfitted with additional headlamps since the headlight rating can be attained utilizing optional lights.
Both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian assessments must result in the Advanced or Superior ratings for front collision avoidance. The systems (which incorporate elements like automated emergency braking or forward collision warning) may be standard or optional. When shopping for a car, consumers who want to optimize front crash safety should think about what comes standard and what they may choose from.
Winners of the Top Safety Pick+ award must get Good ratings on all of the evaluations. This includes the challenging small overlap front test on the passenger side. As of 2020, all versions of the car must have headlights that are rated as Good or Acceptable, not simply particular trim levels or as options. A front accident prevention grade of Advanced or Superior in both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian situations is also required for TSP+ award recipients.
