If you’ve recently been in a car accident where your car was totaled, you’re probably in the market for a new one. With 6 million car crashes taking place in the United States every year, automobile safety is of great concern to many buyers. Fortunately, today’s vehicles offer much more than just antilock brakes and alarm systems. Nowadays, there are vehicles that perform very well in crash tests, have excellent airbags and include many other safety features that make them top choices. Here are some of the safest vehicles that we’ve found so far.
For starters, the crash tests done on the Subaru show that a driver’s injuries would be minimal. In the way that the side and front airbags deploy, they help to protect the head from coming into contact with hard objects that could cause serious injury. The Subaru Outback is also unlikely to be stolen and considering its crash statistics, so you can expect lower car insurance rates as a result.
Although not the fanciest of luxury vehicles, the Acura RLX makes up for aesthetics with some of the best safety features. This vehicle has sensors to help drivers monitor blind spots, multiple safety features such as full-length curtain airbags and knee airbags, a rearview camera to assist with backing up and much more.
The Mazda3 comes with traction control, a rear camera system, antilock brakes, and other features to keep the driver safe. As with the Acura, this one also has curtain airbags as well as blind-spot monitoring. However, one of the features in particular that can be very helpful is the warning system to prevent collisions caused by either lane departures or rear-end collisions. This system can brake automatically if it senses that the vehicle may be struck by another.
The RAV4 is one of our favorites. Not only does it offer safety features for the driver, but it also accounts for the passengers as well. With the rear passenger airbags, you can be sure that everyone in the vehicle is thoroughly protected. In addition, it has excellent traction control, brake assistance and collision warning. There is also a 360-degree camera so you’ll be able to see pedestrians and vehicles from all angles. The safety features along with the spacious interior are just some of the reasons why the RAV4 is on our list of safest vehicles.
While you may feel that you can do without a few of these features, they all enhance your safety on the road, and some of them are vital. A better braking system or airbag can really make a difference in preventing an accident or minimizing injury.
