Ten midsize cars earn good passenger-side crash test ratings from IIHS

But the new F-150 qualifies for the IIHS Top Safety Pick rating only when equipped with the optional automatic braking system.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is so impressed by the safety features in the all-new 2017 Jeep® Compass that it's deemed the compact SUV a "Top Safety Pick for 2017".

2018 Subaru Outback and Legacy earned top marks in newly introduced passenger-side small overlap front crash test. Added to the roster in 2012, it's one of two front-collision challenges IIHS pits cars against: vehicles are driven at 40 miles per hour into a 5 foot tall, rigid barrier, which hits 25-percent of the front of the auto, biased toward the driver's side. This is a common accident that occurs when the front passenger-side corner of a vehicle collides with another vehicle or with an obstacle such as a tree or utility pole.

The 2018 Ford F-150 isn't eligible for the highest IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award because all the available headlights are rated poor.

Pokemon Sun & Moon Being Planned For VR Makeover?
It seems that there isn't much for the developers to do if they want to convert Pokemon Sun & Moon into a full VR title. Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon release exclusively on Nintendo 3DS on November 17th, 2017.

For this test, IIHS will accept test data and video footage from automakers to issue a score.

"The midsize cars we tested didn't have any glaring structural deficiencies on the right side", declared senior research engineer Becky Mueller.

How do the vehicles protect passengers? The Outback's "Good" passenger-side rating also applies to the 2018 Legacy.

Early testing of 2014-16 model year small SUVs found that not all with good driver-side ratings fared so well on the passenger-side test. The safety belt and front and side curtain airbags all worked in concert to keep the crash dummy in place, and measurements showed a low risk of injury in a comparable real-world crash. Nonetheless, with IIHS giving the passenger side equal weighting if manufacturers want to get the best safety sticker, it seems both sides of the auto will benefit from the greater attention to crashworthiness.
