Small But Safe: 2012 Fiat 500 Earns IIHS Top Safety Pick

Americans, it actually seems, are hereditarily conditioned that equate the size along with safety. Complete acknowledgement to the advances in the automotive design as well as the materials, physical size of the car and the truck is also no more a great indication that how safe is the vehicle. Take 2012 Fiat 500, for instance: the IIHS also has awarded models of Fiat 500 that is built after August of year 2011 the award of “Top Safety Pick”, and also 500 is actually small enough to also fall in category of “minicar”.

Earning Top Safety Pick award also needs the car to score “Great” in the frontal offset, the side impact as well as the test for roof strength. Cars even should be well equipped with the electronic stability control that will also help even inexpert drivers to avoid any kind of disastrous rollover accidents.

As the points of Autoblog out, Fiat 500 also joins Ford Fiesta as only minicars that can earn ratings ofTop Safety Pick. As Chevrolet has great and the wonderful plans for Spark in U.S. market, expect that the car will also do perfectly well in the crash testing while it hits market in next year.
