    A vehicle must meet the criteria set by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety to qualify for the TOP SAFETY PICK+ (TSP+) rating in 2023. The vehicle must showcase outstanding crash-worthiness in various crash tests, including the passenger-side small overlap front, driver-side small overlap front, updated side, and original moderate overlap front tests. These assessments evaluate the ability of the vehicle to protect occupants during collisions.

    The Headlight performance of the vehicle is also evaluated. Across all available trims, the vehicles should have "good" or acceptable headlights. IIHS also evaluates the vehicle' front-crash prevention system to assess its effectiveness in pedestrian safety. Vehicles should earn "superior" or "advanced" ratings in both nighttime and daytime vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations.

    "It's exciting to see the IONIQ 6, Hyundai's newest electric vehicle, obtain the highest level of safety," said David Harkey, president, IIHS. "Making sure safety continues to be a priority in alternatively powered vehicles is critical if we are going to achieve the vision of zero traffic fatalities."
