The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety just announced its Top Safety Pick award winners and the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze topped the list in the Small Cars category. It went up against the likes of the Kia Soul, Nissan Cube and VW GTI four-door.
"General Motors' new Chevrolet Cruze broadens the number of award-winning options for consumers looking to buy a fuel-efficient small car. GM built the Cruze, which has 10 standard airbags, including ones for the knees, to outperform the government's minimum roof strength requirements and touts the achievement as a selling point."
Do such awards usually influence your car shopping picks?
