With fuel economy a bigger concern than ever, auto makers are investing more and more into minicars with great fuel efficiency. How safe are these new minicars? Which ones are among these safest? These are a few questions you may be asking yourself. Recently, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) released their annual list of Top Safety Picks and the Nissan Versa tops the list as one of the safest minicars on the road today.
The IIHS ranks vehicles into four categories: Good, Acceptable, marginal and poor. The vehicle is placed into each of these categories based on five test categories composed of moderate overlap frontal crash, small overlap frontal crash, side impact, rollover and rear impact. There were only six mini vehicles to top the IIHS Top Safety Picks list of 2013/2014 and the Nissan Versa is one of those small cars.
