IIHS' Top Safety Picks for 2024: Check out the vehicles—cars, trucks, SUVs, and minivans—that earned a spot on the list.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) announced its 2024 IIHS Top Safety Pick awards on Thursday.

The Hyundai Motor Group took home the most honors this year, securing 16 awards across its Genesis, Hyundai, and Kia brands. Mazda led among individual brands with the most IIHSTop Safety Pick+ awards, earning five.

Among vehicle classes, midsized luxury SUVs boasted the highest number of winners with 12, while small SUVs, midsize SUVs, and midsize luxury SUVs each had five IIHS Top Safety Pick+ recipients.

IIHS President David Harkey noted, "The significant number of SUVs receiving awards likely reflects their widespread popularity in the U.S. market." However, Harkey expressed disappointment that only four pickups and four midsize cars received awards, despite their popularity.

The IIHS emphasized that this year's standards were more stringent, with a focus on enhancing protection for rear seat passengers and pedestrians.
