Safety is a top consideration before U.S. buyers decide to get a car. Therefore, spots on the IIHS Top Safety Pick list are much-coveted by automakers. Just recently, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has named the 2013 Dodge Dart, and three other 2013 designs to its “Top Safety Pick” list. The three other models added to the list were the Lexus ES 350 midsize luxury sedan, the Hyundai crossover Santa Fe and the Subaru XV Crosstrek hatchback. There are now 131 models on the existing list. More info at: Four new models added to IIHS Top Safety Pick list.
