The new TOP SAFETY PICK+ designation was recently handed out by IIHS to reward
vehicles that offer superior crash protection. In order to be eligible for the
distinction, the 2013 models needed to earn good or acceptable ratings in the
new IIHS small overlap test, as well as top marks in other IIHS evaluations.

Safety content from TRW – including occupant safety systems, electronics and
braking technology ranging from airbag modules and sensors to tire pressure
monitoring systems and power steering gears – are featured on seven of the 13
awarded vehicles, including several of the best-selling mid-sized sedans in
North America.

"Having vehicles which feature TRW's leading safety technologies receive
recognition as top safety picks underscores how our products make a difference
in helping automakers produce safer vehicles for consumers," said Peter Lake,
TRW executive vice president, sales and business development. "As vehicle
safety requirements evolve, TRW will continue to move forward, creating
intelligent systems to help enhance passenger safety." 

IIHS rates vehicles good, acceptable, marginal or poor based on performance in
a moderate overlap frontal crash, small overlap frontal crash, side impact and
rollover, plus evaluations of seat/head restraints for protection against neck
injuries in rear impacts. Top Safety Pick+ winners must earn good ratings for
occupant protection in at least four of five evaluations, with no less than
acceptable in the fifth test.
