Keeping all passengers in a vehicle safe is the IIHS's top priority, which means each car goes through a full battery of tests. They even instituted a new test this year called the "small overlap" test, which simulates hitting a tree or light pole with one corner of the car. To give you an idea of how hard it is to come out the other side of these tests with flying colors, check this out - only 38 2014 model vehicles got one of the two highest grades awarded by the IIHS. Last year over 130 models got one of these grades!
