Performance is improving in the small overlap front test, but some small cars still need work.
The latest front crash prevention ratings include more vehicles with advanced or superior systems with autobrake.
New research shows the technology can help drivers avoid backover crashes.
A superior-rated front crash prevention system is a new option on the 2015 Subaru Impreza. The feature, along with the small car's good crashworthiness ratings, qualifies the Impreza for the 2014 Top Safety Pick+ award.
Three minivans perform abysmally in the IIHS small overlap crash test. The Toyota Sienna earns an acceptable rating, bringing the number of minivans with decent protection to two.
IIHS evaluated 41 new booster models for 2014, and 27 earn the highest rating of BEST BET.
With acceptable protection in small overlap front crashes and a superior rating for front crash prevention, the Acura TLX earns the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award.
