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.
