CHEYENNE, Wyo. (KGWN) - The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is releasing its picks for the safest cars of 2018. This year, it's making the top award, "Top Safety Pick Plus", harder to get. The IIHS gave the award to only 15 vehicles, compared to 69 last year.

Hyundai, which owns Genesis and Kia, has six models on the list, while Subaru has four. As a whole, foreign models edged out American models for safety.
