The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is out with its list of the safest vehicles and this year the IIHS is making the criteria more hard for automakers to earn a top grade.

Crash tests have always been a key element in how the IIHS safety rates vehicles. "Toyota and Lexus remain committed to providing safe and reliable vehicles and we're proud to have Toyota Safety Sense and Lexus Safety System+ as standard equipment on nearly every new model in our lineup", said Chris Nielsen, executive vice president of product support and chief quality officer of Toyota Motor North America.

The 2018 model year cars that earned the coveted ranking, Top Safety Pick+, are the BMW 5 Series, Kia Forte (sedan), Genesis G80, Genesis G90, Hyundai Santa Fe, Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, Lincoln Continental, Kia Soul, Mercedes-Benz E-Class (sedan), Mercedes-Benz GLC, Subaru Impreza, Subaru Legacy, Subaru Outback, Subaru WRX, and Toyota Camry. In the new test, a auto traveling at 40 miles per hour hits a metal barrier with only 25 percent of the vehicle's front width, on the front passenger's side. It's a drop from previous year, though, and the new crash tests are not the only reason why.

The IIHS is also raising its standards for headlights.

QCOM) — QUALCOMM Incorporated (NASDAQ
New York State Common Retirement Fund owned about 0.29% of QUALCOMM worth $232,631,000 at the end of the most recent quarter. Gyroscope Capital Management Group Llc increased Qualcomm Inc ( QCOM ) stake by 7.59% reported in 2017Q2 SEC filing.

"We rate headlamps because when we look at how they light up the road many of them aren't doing a very good job", Lund said.

An additional 47 vehicles earned a Top Safety Pick rating.

This is the first time the IIHS has included front-passenger small-overlap testing in its Top Safety Pick rankings.
