To win the award, a vehicle must earn a “Good” rating, which is the highest, in all three of IIHS’ crash tests, which include frontal-offset, side-impact and rear crash tests. The vehicles also must have electronic stability control.
Stability control is optional in the Versa, so only models equipped with the option received the top rating. It’s standard on the LaCrosse.
