Top 5 Safest Cars

While there are a lot of different factors that go into determining how safe a vehicle is, here are five that are consistently considered to be safer than their competitors.

1

Audi A4 4WD

Audi A4 4WD

This Audi model is a top pick because of all the added safety features it offers. As a midsize luxury car, it is also in one of the categories of vehicles that is most likely to protect occupants in a crash. Audi is very thorough with its safety features, and the company focuses on safety much more than some of its competing companies do. Foreign, midsize luxury cars tend to have the lowest numbers when it comes to fatal accidents.

Honda Odyssey

The Odyssey is a minivan, and the larger the vehicle the more room between the driver and the vehicle’s components when involved in a crash. That can mean less chance of being injured or killed, and also more room for safety features like airbags to deploy properly and safely. With that in mind, Honda has also had a reputation for safety that the company has held for years. If you need a minivan, this is the safest one available.

Kia Sorento 2WD

The Kia gets high marks for its airbags and other safety features, including side impact airbags that are not used in some of its competitors’ SUV offerings.

Lexus RX 350 4WD

Another good midsize SUV is the Lexus RX. It provides the same type of protection as the Kia, and is in the same size class. The extra airbags and strength of the frame also benefit the occupants.

Mercedes-Benz GL-Class 4WD

For a full-size luxury SUV that offers a high level of safety, the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is an excellent choice. It has all of the expected safety features such as side impact airbags, and its larger size and heavier weight mean it will not buckle as easily during a crash. That is worth noting, especially if you drive a lot, carry passengers frequently, or spend a large part of your day commuting around other drivers.
