Hyundai Genesis & Mercedes E Class earn TOP SAFETY PICKS awards

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety(IIHS) has awarded their 2010 TOP SAFETY PICK award to two large luxury cars, the Hyundai Genesis and the Mercedes E Class.

The IIHS award rates cars on how they fare in front, side, rollover and rear car accident tests. The TOP SAFETY PICK award is given to vehicles that earn a GOOD in each of the crash tests.

The Hyundai Genesis improved their roof structure in 2010 models which is important in rollover car accidents.

Mercedes redesigned the E class for 2010 and this is the first year that the E series earned a TOP SAFETY PICK award. The design changes made the vehicles safer in side-impact car accidents by adding padding to the front and rear doors. The award is given to all E class models built after March 2010.
