Littleton (I-Newswire) August 12, 2013 - The iconic Beetle has earned the coveted Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's (IIHS) TOP SAFETY PICK rating for 2013. The annual rating recognizes those vehicles that perform in the Institute's moderate overlap frontal crash, side impact and rollover, plus evaluations of seat/head restraints for protection against neck injuries in rear impacts.
