IIHS said that along with its traditional rankings, they wanted to let the consumer know which vehicles were the safest, thus creating the TSP+ award.
“Of the 29 models evaluated so far in our small overlap frontal crash test, these 13 cars offer the highest level of all-around crash protection,” says Adrian Lund, IIHS president. “We’re pleased to recognize them with our new Top Safety Pick+ award for 2013.”
