Insight, Soul & Prius Earn 'Top Safety Pick'

August 19, 2009

ARLINGTON, VA --- The 2010 Honda Insight, 2010 Kia Soul and 2010 Toyota Prius have all received the Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. 

To qualify for Top Safety Pick, a vehicle must earn the highest rating of "good" in the institute's front, side and rear crash tests and be equipped with electronic stability control. 

Criteria to win are tough because the award is intended to drive continued safety improvements, the institute said. These improvements include top crash-test ratings and the rapid addition of electronic stability control, which is standard on the Prius and Soul, and optional on the Insight. 

"Recognizing vehicles at the head of the class for safety helps consumers distinguish the best overall choices without having to sort through multiple test results," said Institute President Adrian Lund.
