The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety released its 2018 top award winners today.

Just 15 vehicles got the highest score of ‘top safety pick+’. Another 47 vehicles received the designation of ‘top safety pick’.

One interesting facet of the 15 vehicles rated the highest is who makes 10 of them. Subaru landed four in the top 15 and Hyundai landed six.

Our hometown manufacturer, Honda, was well represented in the 47 vehicles that scored as a ‘top safety pick’. Five Honda models and two Acura models made that list.
