The safest vehicles in 2015 include cars from Mazda, Honda, Chrysler, Lexus, Subaru, Acura and more.

The Top Safety Picks -- released by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety -- include more vehicles than ever before, with 71 awards given out as opposed to last year's 39.

The list is determined by tests done to determine "crashworthiness," or how well each vehicle protects drivers and passengers in crashes and collisions. Top Safety Pick awards are given out for roof strength, head restraints and more. Front crash prevention, warning systems and automatic braking are all taken into account for Top Safety Pick+ awards.

Here are the picks by the IIHS that have superior front crash prevention systems and received a Top Safety Pick+ rating, or received a "Good" rating or better. Click above to read on!
