The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) released in December its picks for the safest cars from model year 2019. The organization gave 20 SUVs its "top safety pick" designation. Of those vehicles, nine were included in the organization's highest tier, "top safety pick+."

To earn "top safety pick+," a vehicle must perform well in a variety of crash tests. The vehicle must receive a "good" rating in tests related to its front, side, roof, and head restraints, an "advanced" or "superior" rating for front crash prevention and a "good" rating for its headlights. (The requirements to earn "top safety pick" are similar, though the vehicle can receive an "acceptable" rating for a test involving its front passenger-side small overlap and an "acceptable" rating for its headlights.)

Hyundai had four SUVs on the list, more than any other automaker. Honda and Mazda each landed three SUVs on the list.

These are the 20 safest SUVs for model year 2019, according to the IIHS.
