Here Are the 20 Safest Small and Midsize Cars

According to IIHS, these cars offer better protection than others in front, side, and rollover crashes.

Every year the (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) IIHS tests cars to find the safest in each category. To be marked a Top Safety Pick for 2021 (or a Top Safety Pick Plus) a car needed “good ratings in the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests.” It also had to have “advanced or superior rating for available front crash prevention—vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations.” Finally, cars coming standard with “acceptable or good” headlights got the Plus moniker; the ones with “acceptable or good” headlights as optional got the standard Top Safety Pick rating. Today we’re looking at small and midsize vehicles. We’ll get to the bigger ones in a later gallery. Click around to see our reviews and more pictures.
