The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) bestows the Top Safety Pick+ honor on a handful of cars every year. This title is only given to cars that are designed with advanced crash prevention technology and safety features that minimize injuries in the event of a collision. There’s no way to completely eliminate the risk of car accidents or injuries, but these cars significantly reduce the risk. Here’s a look at the safest cars of 2018:
The Kia Forte is designed with a number of safety features that protect drivers and passengers on the road. One feature that stands out is the Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system. This system gives drivers more steering control even when the weather is bad and the roads are slippery. Since so many accidents are caused by bad weather, this feature could go a long way in making the roads safer.
Subaru improved upon older models of the Legacy by upgrading some of the most important safety features, including the blind spot detection technology. This model is also designed with LATCH anchors that make it easier for parents to secure a child car seat in place before hitting the road.
Another sedan that made the list is the Toyota Camry. The newest Camry is designed with crash prevention technology that helps drivers stay aware of their surroundings. In fact, this technology alerts drivers if they are starting to swerve into the other lane or if a pedestrian is detected nearby.
BMW 5 Series
The BMW 5 Series is one of the few luxury sedans on this year’s list. This vehicle is designed with a backup camera and park-assist technology to help drivers squeeze into tight parking spaces. Some models also come with forward-collision warning technology and automatic emergency braking, which activates when the car detects an imminent crash.
Nine airbags are built into the newest Genesis G80, including several side-airbags that are built into the roof of the vehicle. The car is also designed with an energy-absorbing steering column and reinforcements along the sides to keep passengers as safe as possible in the event of a collision.
These cars may reduce the number of accidents that occur, but they won’t be able to prevent every accident.
