(KSL News) A new report out today highlights next year's car models that are praised for their safety.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reports a number of new cars considered the safest by their industry nearly tripled in the past year.
Adrian Lund, president of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, said, "What it shows you is that automakers are competing on safety now. They used to say safety doesn't sell."
Ford and Honda had the most vehicles on the institute's annual list. Thirty-four vehicles in all received the top safety pick designation.
Pickup trucks also were new to the list this year with the Toyota Tundra being the first of its kind to get the safety rating.
