The Tesla Model 3 is only one of two full-electric vehicles to be named a Top Safety Pick+ by the IIHS (the other one being the Audi eTron crossover SUV). Unlike most of the models on our list, the Model 3 comes standard with top-rated headlights. This is an LED reflector system and it comes with an auto high beam feature.
The car’s standard Automatic Emergency Braking system is rated Superior. Tesla’s controversial Autopilot system comes standard. A more-advanced optional system includes automatic driving from on-ramp to off-ramp with automatic lane changing, among other functions.
