08/13/2009 - TORRANCE, Calif. -

The 2010 Honda Insight EX earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) 2009 TOP SAFETY PICK Award, the organization's highest honor. The annual award recognizes vehicles that do the best job of protecting vehicle occupants involved in front, side, and rear crashes based on ratings in IIHS tests.

"Fuel economy and safety have always been part of Honda's DNA," said Erik Berkman, vice president of corporate planning and logistics. "The Insight EX is a great example of an affordable vehicle that receives a high rating for safety."

Honda operates two of the world's most sophisticated crash test laboratories with the objective of developing the highest level of safety design and technology. The Tochigi, Japan, facility was the world's first indoor omni-directional car-to-car crash testing facility and the Honda R&D America's Raymond, Ohio, development center performs testing on all U.S.-developed models.
