Smaller Vehicles Improve in Safety Ratings

It is no surprise when one finds out that their small car has a poor safety rating. But according to some new research by the Insurance Insitutute for Highway Safety (IIHS), these ratings are on the upswing.

IIHS evaluated 13 small cars in terms of safety. At the conclusion on the rating, six earned top safety awards. Additionally, none of them walked away with a “poor” rating. (Areas evaluated: front, rear, side, and rollover impact.)

What are these top rated vehicles? Ford Focus, Honda Civic, Hyndai Elantra and the Toyota Prius.
