Car safety has come on leaps and bounds in recent years, and purchasing a vehicle that prioritizes safety should be at the top of your list. Even if you’re a sensible driver, accidents happen.
As cars have improved on their safety, so has the technology to test them. This means it has become increasingly more difficult for models to get a top vehicle safety rating. Alongside traditional vehicle tests other items are now assessed, such as collision avoidance technology. Another recent addition to the test is focused on how well headlights perform. It’s worth noting that both crash collision technology and advance headlights are optional on some of the below models, and their high rating is based on the inclusion of these features.
