The time has come once again for the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s picks for their coveted top safety picks for 2013-2014 automobiles.  This year’s awards were even tougher to achievefor automakers because of tighter criteria.

Dueto these changes, at total of twenty-two cars earned the highest award of TopSafety Pick Plus compared with thirteen awards from last year.

So what are someof the changes in the testing? Well, new front-end crash simulations are nowincorporated into the tests to make sure that the vehicles experience collisionswith front object both caused by their own accord, and by a possible other vehiclebehind it that may have caused the tested car to veer off its intendedpath.  We all know that car accidents canhappen at a moments notice and from every which way.  That’s why having a vehicle that made it onthis list, along with outstanding CT auto insurance will help you out!

This year’s TopSafety Pick Plus list includes the Acura MDX and RLX; the Ford Fusion; thetwo-door and four-door Honda Accord, Civic Hybrid and Odyssey; the InfinitiQ50; the Lincoln MKZ; the Mazda 3, Mazda 6 and CX-5; the Mercedes-Benz M-Class;the Mitsubishi Outlander; the Subaru Forester, Legacy and Outback; the ToyotaHighlander and Prius; and the Volvo S60, S80 and XC60.
