The 3 Safest Cars On The Road Today

by Maverick on April 21, 2011

The safest car is one which provides high crash protection in case of an accident. There is no doubt about the fact that automobile makers are making game-changing innovations by designing cars with safety features that allow common injuries to be avoided. For example, airbags are present in almost all new cars today, so that the potentially fatal aftermath of a head-on collision can be prevented. While most safety features are unable to prevent accidents and damage to the car itself, they do very well at preventing injuries to the occupants.

The Volvo XC60 is one of the safest cars available today. It is basically designed with the purpose of keeping its passengers not only comfortable but safe as well.  This is regardless of age or size, and the car can even prevent accidents from occurring in the first place. A driver support system is one of its unique features, which differentiates it from its competitors. This system is designed to prevent or reduce vehicle-on-vehicle collisions below 19 mph by using a closing velocity sensor.  This sensor helps to determine when a collision is about to take place. In case of a hit, the computer system automatically applies the brake.

The Mercedes Benz E Class is nothing if not well-known. In fact, it is one of the most popular cars in the world. It offers many unparalleled safety features, which cannot possibly be covered in this article. However, among the key features it offers is Brake Assist technology, which allows the vehicle to automatically apply the brakes in the event of an emergency. This makes it a great option for new drivers who are not used to having to respond to rapidly-changing driving situations, or older drivers whose reaction time may have decreased.

Hyundai offer the Genesis, another very safe option. It offers airbags on all sides, as well as an anti-skid control system, which makes it stand out on list of safe cars. Moreover, it has an Anti-lock Braking System, which prevents brakes from “locking up“ when they are applied to prevent a crash. It offers numerous other safety features as well, which serve not only to protect the driver and passengers, but to protect the car itself.

The purpose of a car is not only to cover the long distances in a short time, but also to offer comfortable and secure travel to the people who depend on it. This is why safety should be the first factor car manufacturers take into consideration.

Whether you are a single driver, or are shopping for a family vehicle, safety features should be your primary consideration. Luckily, with the wide variety of safe cars available, you will be able to find a safe vehicle that fits your style, needs, and your budget.
