Fiat 500 IIHS at Fiat 500 Named Top Safety Pick by IIHS

Fiat 500 passes the IIHS crash tests with flying colors and starts its quest of conquering America.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is the equivalent of EuroNCAP. The Fiat has already been tested in Europe, but now it gets the American certification of safety as well.

It’s been awarded as a Top Safety Pick, which is something like the five-star rating of the NCAP and means the car is pretty safe. That means Fiat 500 has scored ‘good’ in front, side, rollover and rear crash tests.

Standard safety features on the 500 include driver and front passenger advanced multi-stage air bags, driver’s knee air bag, full-length side-curtain air bags and standard seat-mounted side pelvic-thorax air bags for enhanced passenger protection, as well as reactive head restraints, and high strength steel door beams.
