2012 Fiat 500 gets Top Safety Pick designation

The 2012 Fiat 500 has something to be proud of! The US Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has just named the car a “Top Safety Pick.”

To be given the designation, a car must feature standard electronic stability control and obtain the top “good” ratings in front, rear, rollover and side impact evaluations.

This designation applies to Fiat 500s created after July this year, when the structure of the driver’s seat was modified to boost occupant safety in rear-end and frontal crashes.

The Fiat 500 joins Ford Fiesta as the only minicars to be named “Top Safety Pick,” said the IIHS.
