Safest Cars on the Road

When purchasing a new vehicle what are you looking for? A certain colour, style, a newer car, or used car? Are you concerned with the need for speed or are you concerned with your and your passengers safety in the event of an accident? For those seeking safety, read on!

So what is it that truly makes a car safe? Side airbags and anti-lock brakes are not enough to deem your car a top safety rating. Accident prevention technology is what contributes to a safe vehicle, this varies widely from warning systems to auto brake systems.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has released the top safety picks for 2014. In order to be on the Top Safety list the vehicle must have good ratings in the conducted crash tests, must have crash prevention systems, and include automatic braking or front collision warning. Drivers who are seeking crash prevention technology and protection have a fair number of vehicle types to pick from. The top safety picks for 2014 included the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu, 2014 Chevrolet Equinox, 2014 GMC Terrain, 2015 Hyundai Genesis, 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 2015 Volkswagen Golf, and 2015 Volkswagen GTI.

So before buying your next vehicle investigate to see how the given make and model performed on the Insurance Industry crash test and what rating it received. You can also view the government crash test rating. Vehicles larger in height have a higher likelihood of rolling due to a higher centre of gravity. Research the rollover resistance on the vehicle you’re interested in purchasing. Ask about anti-lock brake systems, accident avoidance, air bags, safety belt features, head restraints, and child safety. Drive safely!
