ARLINGTON, VA — Sixty-six vehicles earn the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's Top Safety Pick award for 2011, including 40 cars, 25 SUVs, and a minivan. Top Safety Pick recognizes vehicles that do the best job of protecting people in front, side, rollover, and rear crashes based on good ratings in Institute tests. Winners also must have available electronic stability control, a crash avoidance feature that significantly reduces crash risk. The ratings help consumers pick vehicles that offer a higher level of protection than federal safety standards require.

1959 Chevrolet Bel Air vs. 2009 Chevrolet Malibu IIHS crash test
IIHS 50th anniversary demonstration test • September 9, 2009
In the 50 years since US insurers organized the Insurance Institute for
Highway Safety, car crashworthiness has improved. Demonstrating this was a
crash test conducted between a 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air and a 2009 Chevrolet
Malibu. In a real-world collision similar to this test, occupants of the
new model would fare much better than in the vintage Chevy.
"It was night and day, the difference in occupant protection," says
Institute president Adrian Lund. "What this test shows is that automakers
don't build cars like they used to. They build them better."
The crash test was conducted at an event to celebrate the contributions of
auto insurers to highway safety progress over 50 years. Beginning with the
Institute's 1959 founding, insurers have maintained the resolve,
articulated in the 1950s, to "conduct, sponsor, and encourage programs
designed to aid in the conservation and preservation of life and property
from the hazards of highway accidents."

Low-speed vehicle crash tests
IIHS news release • May 20, 2010
ARLINGTON, VA - Low-speed vehicles and minitrucks shouldn't share busy
public roads with regular traffic
More states are allowing a relatively new breed of vehicle on public roads,
but crash tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety show why the
mix of low-speed vehicles (LSVs) or minitrucks and regular traffic is a
deadly combination. LSVs are designed for tooling around residential
neighborhoods, and minitrucks are for hauling cargo off-road. While these
vehicles have a lot of appeal as a way to reduce emissions and cut fuel
use, they don't have to meet the basic safety standards that cars and
pickups do, and they aren't designed to protect their occupants in crashes.
