It also must earn an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention and an acceptable or good headlight rating," according to the report.

Toyota led the way with 10 vehicles on the list. Hyundai followed closely with nine total vehicles.

Many of the cars on the list only qualified because of optimal equipment, meaning the basic models don’t include all the safety features.

Utah’s favorite cars failed to make the “Top Safety Pick Plus” list. One report said Utah’s favorite car is the Subaru Crosstrek, which is also favored in states like Idaho and Oregon. The car did make the IIHS “Top Safety Pick” list, however.

Another report identified the Ford F-150 pickup truck as Utah’s favorite car. No Ford vehicles made the IIHS lists.
