The Safest Cars In America

Published 2/24/2015 by Frank Ling in General
Image: everyone has experienced a car accident at one time or another. Most of them fall into the category of non-serious fender benders where no one is injured and the cars sustain minimum damage.

But some of us would rather have extra protection in the possible event that a more serious car accident occurs. Cars with high safety ratings are the ones that fit this bill. The following partial list reveals some of the safest cars to drive in America by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Bigger Is Better?

It seems that the old wisdom of “bigger is better” proves true for safe cars; most of the ones listed by the IIHS were minivans, SUVS, and larger cars. This isn’t surprising as the more metal you have wrapped around you, the more likely you’ll be shielded from any serious injuries due to impact.

The List

The following partial list shows the top rated safest cars in America and their test scores.

Audi A4 Quattro

While not the most popular or most purchased car in the United States, the Audi A4 Quattro received good overall marks for side and front protection, with good roof strength, and good head restraints and seats.

Honda Odyssey

This popular family van is a hit with consumers, and scored a perfect 5-stars from the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration). The van received overall good marks in front and side crash protection.

Kia Sorento 2WD

NHTSA scores this SUV with a 4-star rating. IIHS safety ratings says the Kia Sorento 2WD has good front and side protection, good roof strength, and good head and seat restraints.

Lexus RX 350 4WD

If you want good protection in your ride, why not do it in style with the Lexus RX 350 4WD SUV. It scored well with a 4-star rating from the NHTSA and had no incidents of rollover.

GMC Yukon 4WD

If big is what you’re after, look no further than GMC’s Yukon 4WD. This behemoth is almost 17 feet long and three tons heavy. But in spite of its mass, it has many creature comforts that turns this ride into a luxurious driving experience. With all that metal, it scored a good 4-star rating with the NHTSA.

Chevrolet Equinox 4WD

This SUV gets good ratings from both the IIHS and NHTSA. If you’re looking for a safe SUV to drive the family around, this one may fit the bill. It scored 4-stars for safety from the NHTSA.

Safety for the Team

If you are a parent or coach that is involved with your children’s soccer league, Little League Baseball, basketball, or a hockey team, a good way to transport a few members from event to event is in a SUV. They'll provide that extra measure of safety to protect its passengers.
