As a student, you need a safe car to get to and from school. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awards vehicles with Top Safety Pick or Top Safety Pick + based on their crashworthiness (how well the car protects you in the event of a crash) and crash avoidance and mitigation (technology to prevent crashes from happening or lessen their severity). The IIHS website allows you to search the make and model of your vehicle to learn about its rating. You can also look at consumer reports to learn about the car’s performance, reliability, and safety.
