Arlington, Virginia – The 2010 Dodge Journey, Lincoln MKT and Mazda3 have been named Top Safety Pick award winners by the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

To qualify for an award, a vehicle must earn the highest rating of “good” in the Institute’s front, side and rear tests, and be equipped with electronic stability control, which is standard on the Journey and MKT, and optional on the Mazda3.

“Recognizing vehicles at the head of the class for safety helps consumers distinguish the best overall choices without having to sort through multiple test results,” said Institute president Adrian Lund.
