Every year the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) releases its Top Safety Picks. The IIHS conducts vehicle tests to determine crashworthiness — how well a vehicle protects its occupants in a crash. It also rates vehicles for front crash prevention, systems that warn the driver or brake automatically to avoid or mitigate a frontal collision. The vehicles that perform best in the tests qualify for TOP SAFETY PICK.

Here are the Top Safety Picks for 2017 by category, and by alphabetical order:
