Additionally, a candidate must earn a Superior rating in front crash prevention technology tests or an Advanced rating in both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations.

    Top Safety Pick winners must also be available with Good or Acceptable headlights. The “plus” designation is given to models that have Good or Acceptable headlights across all trim levels and packages.
