The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has posted its official list of safety award winners for 2021, handing out 49 of the best-possible Top Safety Pick+ award. Another 41 vehicles earned the next best thing, the Top Safety Pick award. Some quick math shows there are 90 models in all recognized this time around, which is a healthy increase from 2020 when there were 60 chosen ones. Here’s how IIHS president David Harkey explains the jump:
“With these awards, we want to make it easy for consumers to find vehicles that provide good protection in crashes, sufficient lighting and effective front crash protection. Manufacturers have stepped up to meet the challenge, and the list of great options has grown to an impressive size this year.”
