The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has honored 15 vehicles with their Top Safety Pick+ honor.
This year the criteria proved a bit more hard to meet.
To earn the awards, vehicles go through a number of crash tests to show they can protect occupants in front, side, rollover and rear impact collisions as well as testing automatic emergency breaking systems.
The Institute's headlight ratings also are relatively new, with the first ones being released in March 2016.
Another 47 vehicles earn the Top Safety Pick Award, which now requires acceptable or good headlights.
The group crashed brand new vehicles at speeds of 40 miles per hour in the pursuit of safety. It's similar to the existing small front overlap test, a rigorous evaluation that crashes a vehicle into a barrier at 40 miles per hour with just 25 percent of the driver-side front end striking the obstacle.
"Most drivers when they buy a auto they think the passenger is going to be protected as well as they are".
