Safety First: 2015 IIHS Top Safety Picks
Posted on Jan 28, 2015 by InsuranceCalls Company
The annual Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has released their top picks for 2015 as a result of their latest survey. The number of vehicles earning the IIHS “Top Safety Pick Plus” has since doubled for 2015. A total of 71 cars have been named a Top Safety Pick or Top Safety Pick Plus. 38 cars have been honored with the “Top Safety Pick” and 33 cars have been awarded “Top Safety Pick Plus” and are considered top tier. Consumers have more to choose from when it comes to the safest vehicles of 2015 and who doesn’t want to feel safe in their vehicles? Parents are among the most concerned when it comes to choosing a car based on safety ratings.
As this is the third consecutive year that the IIHS has used tougher safety measures many car makers have stepped up to the plate and turned around negative ratings that they had received in the past. Honda CR-V and Toyota Prius V are two vehicles that have shown vast improvement in ratings.
The list of 2015 Top Safety Pick Plus vehicles include: Subaru Outback, Subaru XV Crosstrek, Subaru Impreza, Subaru Legacy, Subaru Forester, Acura MDX, Acura TLX. Toyota Prius, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Mercedes-Benz M-Class, BMW 2 series, Audi A3, Volvo S80, Volvo XC60, Volvo S60, Volvo V60, Chrysler 200, Honda CR-V, Mitsubishi Outlander, Lexus CT 200H, Lexus RC, Lexus NX, Toyota Camry, Toyota Sienna, Acura RLX, Toyota Highlander, Mazda 3, Mazda 6, Mazda CX-5, Toyota Prius V, Hyundai Genesis, Infiniti Q70, Infiniti Q50
