Image: Gizmodo.comSmall cars have had a bad rap for being unsafe and dangerous. But due to improved technology, materials, research and development, and better designs, even small cars are safer than they were before.

According to the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) and the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) some of the safest small cars you can buy in America are on the following list.
Small and Safe

The ratings for these small cars were determined by how well they were able to sustain crash damage during controlled tests. These included critical assessments such as the small overlap frontal crash tests.

Cars with the best safety ratings were given 5-stars from the NHTSA or a “Top Safety Pick” designation from the IIHS.

Chevy Volt
Top Safety Pick – IIHS

The Chevy Volt is a hybrid car that obtains its primary energy source from batteries, with a gasoline engine to charge these batteries when the electrical power is low. This futuristic car scored well in crash tests and also offers optional safety features.

Honda Fit
5-Stars – NHTSA
Top Safety Pick – IIHS

This very popular small car won top awards from the NHTSA and IIHS for its ability to withstand crash impacts. The Honda Fit was the only sub-compact car to garner such high ratings from both the IIHS and NHTSA. The car was redesigned for 2015 and the modifications helped it to get high marks for car safety.

Mazda CX-5
4-Stars – NHTSA
Top Safety Pick Plus – IIHS

If you want one of the safest compact crossovers manufactured you need not look any further than Mazda’s CX-5. It has a good offering of safety features such as low-speed auto-brake technology, and very good crash tests results.

Dodge Dart
5-Stars – NHTSA
Top Safety Pick – IIHS

Although the Dodge Dart may be seen as an entry level car that is easy on the wallet, it rates very high on the safety scale. If airbags are any indication of this, it has an abundance of them with 10-air bags. It scored very well in crash tests and rated the coveted Top Safety Pick and 5-Star rating from the IIHS and NHTSA, respectively.

I believe what you said was actually very logical. However, think about this, suppose you composed a catchier title? I ain't suggesting your content is not good, however what if you added a headline to maybe get a person's attention? I mean Car Bid Now Blog | Car Tips #100: Safest Small Cars In America is a little plain. You might peek at Yahoo's home page and note how they create news titles to grab people interested. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to grab people interested about what you've got to say. In my opinion, it might bring your website a little livelier.    prestamos rapidos online -  My weblog ::  creditos rapidos con asnef -
