After winning last week respectively  the Car of the Year and the Green Car of the Year awards, both vehicles were subjected to crash tests by the IIHS and emerge with the highest scores on all four tests: front, side, rear, and rollover.

And therefore receive the title of Top Safety Pick Award (the safest vehicles).
