5 Safest Cars on the Market

When purchasing a family car, one of the most important aspects people are looking for is how safe the car is. Car buyers are looking at cars which provide extensive occupant protection; the latest technological developments in crash avoidance and vulnerable road user detection.

Most cars currently under production are designed with a focus on reducing accidents. To measure this, judges look for pioneering technological advancements - when testing the cars - that reduce collision impact and detect road users most at risk from injury.

AEB (Autonomous Emergency Braking) has become one of the most desired features in new models and they do, in fact, feature in the models we are going to look at here. So without further ado, here are 5 of the safest cars on the market today:

Honda Civic

The latest addition to the Civic timeline is their 10th generation hatchback. The Honda Civic comes with top line safety features including AEB as well as Lane Departure Warnings: a mechanism designed to warn the driver when the vehicle begins to move out of its lane if an indicator is not activated in that direction. They are also benefitted by Land Adaptive Cruise Control and six airbags.

Mercedes X-Class

If you’re looking for something with some extra storage space, then the sleek new pick-up from Mercedes is a classy choice. The X-Class comes equipped with Active Break Assist, Adaptive Brake Lights and Lane Keeping Assist, as well as Electronic Stability Programmes that stabilise the vehicle by applying the brakes on separate wheels to avoid skids.

Subaru Impreza

Subaru’s newest edition of the family hatchback features the innovative EyeSight technology which warns drivers of any potential hazards, as well as Rear Vehicle Detection and High Beam Assist.

Subaru XV

Another version from the Subaru, this time in the form of their SUV/crossover with Vehicle Dynamic Control Systems that reduce the risk of over/under steer, as well as a Thatcham Category 1 alarm system and immobiliser.

Toyota C-HR

This SUV includes the trusted Lane Departure Alert as well as a Pre-Collision System (with Pedestrian Control) and Road Sign Alerts as standard.
