The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) rates individual areas of cars on a scale from Poor to Good, and then names a select few as top safety picks. To qualify as a top safety pick, a car must earn Good ratings for areas such as side crash test, roof strength, and receive a superior rating for front crash prevention. This year the 2018 Toyota RAV4 was named an IIHS Top Safety Pick.
Another reliable organization is the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
