Twenty-two vehicles meet criteria for insurance industry's highest safety award

Just 22 vehicles earned the U.S. insurance industry's highest safety award for 2014. That's because the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety used tougher standards this year in its annual Top Safety Pick. It graded vehicles not just on how well they protect during a crash - but how well they prevent them from happening, using warning systems or automatic breaking. SOUNDBITE: INSURANCE INSTITUTE FOR HIGHWAY SAFETY PRESIDENT ADRIAN LUND SAYING WHILE DEMONSTRATING INSIDE MOVING CAR: "We're driving at the stationary target, and when we get close enough the vehicle will sense an eminent collision and sound a forward collision warning and if I don't take any action then the vehicle will try to stop itself."

It's meant to replicate real life accident scenarios
