In order to come up with this list of safest cars, we looked at vehicles that earn top scores in both (sorry, Tesla Motors) federal and IIHS crash-test programs. First we separated out models that get NHTSA five-star scores overall, frontal, and side (allowing 4 stars for rollover): then we looked at which of those models also qualify for the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ nod.
