The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has posted its official list of safety award winners for 2022, handing out 65 of the best-possible Top Safety Pick+ award. Another 36 vehicles earned the next best thing, the Top Safety Pick award.

That means that for 2022, there were precisely 101 models recognized this time around, which is up from the 90 that were rewarded in 2021.

The happiest folks with the announcement of the 2022 safety choices will certainly be those in the employ of the Hyundai Group. Across its three major brands, the South Korean auto giant saw 21 models get recognition for offering their users a safe environment, including 11 that took home the highest Pick+ title. Of those 11 models, four carry the Hyundai badge, two the Kia logo, and five models produced by luxury brand Genesis. That’s every single model that company produces, by the way.
