The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety released the list of 2010 cars that are considered to be top picks for safety. This is a different rating scale than the government conducts each year that gives each car a starred safety rating. The 2010 list of top picks is nearly one-third shorter than the 2009 list. This is widely considered to be because of the newly instituted roof crush test. Other tests conducted on the cars include the high-speed front and side crash tests, a test to see how likely a car is to rollover, and tests of seat/head restraints designed to protect against whiplash and other neck injuries. In addition to listing the top picks, each car tested is given a rating of Good, Acceptable, Marginal or Poor. To qualify as a top pick a car must score good in each of the four tested categories and must be equipped with electronic stability control. The list of top picks is published in its entirety each year by Edmunds on their website as well as their in print publication. The list includes the large cars such as: Buick Lacrosse, BMW 5 Series, Ford Taurus, Cadillac CTS, Hyundai Genesis, Infinity M37, Mercedes Benz E Class, Toyota Avalon, and the Volvo S80. Midsize cars on the list were: Audi A3 and A4, Chevrolet Malibu, Chrysler Sebring, Dodge Avenger, Ford Fusion, Hyundai Sonata, Lincoln MKZ, Mercury Milan, Subaru Legacy and Outback, Volkswagen Jetta and Passat and Volvo C30. Small and Mini cars that made the list of top picks were: Honda Civic, Kia Forte and Soul, Mitsubishi Lancer, Nissan Cube, Subaru Impreza, Toyota Corolla, Volkswagen Golf, and the Scion XB. The list published by Edmunds also includes trucks, sports utility vehicles and minivans that achieved the top picks status based on the same type of tests.
