(AP) - Honda tops the insurance industry's annual list of the safest new vehicles.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is giving 39 vehicles top safety ratings for 2014. Honda, which also owns the Acura brand, has the most winners of any automaker, with eight of its vehicles making the list.
There were a total of 130 vehicles on the top safety list last year, but now vehicles must meet tougher standards, such as a good front crash prevention system.
