Image: Motor TrendIf you want maximum protection against possible injury in a car accident, a good way to do this is to wrap yourself with a nice, big car. Statistics generally show that larger cars offer more protection than smaller vehicles.

But this doesn’t mean that a safe small car is impossible. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) there are several small cars that were able to get the highest grades for safety—a five star rating.

If you like the idea of a small car but are worried about how it would hold up in an accident, some of the following vehicles may fit your safety needs.

Chevy Volt

This car is Chevrolet’s first entry into the hybrid car market, and the enthusiastic response from owners seems to substantiate that this car is a real miser when sipping gas. But in addition to great mileage, it also performs well in crash tests. The IIHS gave this vehicle a “Top Safety Pick” rating.

Honda Fit

This little car is the only subcompact to receive the coveted 5-star safety rating from the NHTSA and the Top Safety Pick rating from the IIHS. If you like subcompacts, you’ll get the added bonus of a very safe car with the Honda Fit.

Dodge Dart

If you want to talk about safety, the Dodge Dart will give you 10 standard airbags to protect you in the event of a car accident. This car scored 5-stars in front and side crash tests, and has a high 4-star rating for rollover tests. The only downside to the Dodge Dart is its reputation as an unreliable car with above average repair rates.

Honda Civic

It seems that virtually everyone has driven or knows someone who owns a Honda Civic. This perennial favorite with small car fans scores a 5-star rating for the demanding small overlap front crash test. These cars have standard rearview cameras, and a forward collision warning on the hybrid model.

Mazda 3

If you want some nice styling in a small car, the Mazda 3 may be a car worth considering. It scores 5-star ratings for the NHTSA crash tests, has auto-braking technology, forward obstruction warnings, and brake assist for maximum, safe braking for low speed.

Kia Soul

This sporty little boxy car has good looks and a good safety rating too. It beat out competition such as the Honda Element and Nissan Cube in crash ratings tests; only the Kia Soul aced all crash tests and rollover tests. This car received 5-stars from the NHSTA and a Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS.

The Best Safety Equipment


Larger cars give drivers a feeling of being safer, and to some extent, this is true. But the most important factor is the safety equipment behind the steering wheel—a safe driver.
