Ford, Volvo, top safety picks: Insurance Institute For Highway Safety

Ford and Volvo models top the The Insurance Institute For Highway Safety (IIHS)’s annual list of top safety picks.

The Virginia-based Institute awarded its “top safety pick” to only 27 vehicles (19 passenger cars and eight SUV’s) for the 2010 model year, down from a record-high 94 vehicles that received the designation for the 2009 model year. The IIHS says tougher requirements for roof strength contributed heavily to the decline.

Ford and Volvo had the most awards with six. Subaru was singled out as the only manufacturer with a winner in all four vehicle classes in which it competed, earnings five awards in total.
