IIHS Reports Cars with Most, Fewest Crash-Related Fatalities

Nine car models had no reported deaths.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) released the results of a study regarding the recent decline of fatalities related to automotive crashes, citing the proliferation of safety technology and high-strength build materials as effective variables. According to IIHS data, crash-related fatalities have dropped a whopping one-third in the past three years.

This year marks another heartening record: there are nine car models which have seen zero reported deaths as a result of crashes. Eight years ago, there was not a single model without any reported fatalities. The study is not all about good news, though, as it also highlights models which have more reported deaths than average. Take a look at the charts below to see the top nine vehicles with the lowest reported fatalities, and the top nine vehicles with the largest amount of reported fatalities from 2009-2012.
