Insurance group picks 115 safest cars
Revamped Honda, Toyota models among recipients
An insurance industry group named a record 115 vehicles as “top safety picks’’ this week, including the new versions of the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. The list from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety includes 18 new recipients on top of the 97 who qualified for the award last year and had it carry over to the 2012 model year. The institute tests the vehicles to see how well they hold up in front, side, rear and roll-over crashes.
