Five Of The Safest Cars On The Road

A brief description of five of the safest cars on the road today.

With recalls on seven major automobile brands, including dozens of models, and million of cars, safety is back on the consumer's mind in a big way. The good news is that current scoring on car safety now includes a lot more than front end crash tests. These test subject the vehicle to impact from multiple directions and test the efficacy of multiply secure systems and features. The Insurance Institute For Highway Safety features a new "Top Safety Pick +" category of recognition beginning with 2013 and 2014 models. We have picked five of the most popular passenger cars with the highest IIHS safety designation to review. With so many possible causes, if you have a specific situation requiring representation to evaluate the safety performance of your vehicle or the other party's vehicle in an accident, it's always best to rely on trusted counsel like you will find at the Law Offices of Christopher Jackson.

Honda Accord
The 2014 Honda Accord has an MSN Auto user rating of 9.1. The safety features include side airbags, front and rear head curtain airbags and front seat-mounted torso airbags. Other safety features include rollover sensor designed to deploy the curtain airbags, electronic stability control, antilock brakes and daytime running lights.

Honda Civic
The 2014 Honda Civic has an MSN Auto user rating of 8.9. The Civic has all of the safety features as its cousin, Honda Accord, except a rollover sensor.

Ford Fusion
The 2014 Ford Fusion has an MSN Auto user rating of 8.7. The safety features include side airbags, front and rear head curtain airbags and front seat-mounted torso airbags. Other safety features include driver and front passenger knee airbags, electronic stability control, antilock brakes, and daytime running lights.

Nissan Altima
The 2014 Nissan Altima has an MSN Auto user rating of 9.1. The safety features include side airbags, front and rear head curtain airbags, and front seat-mounted torso airbags. Additional features include electronic stability control and antilock brakes.

Chrysler 200
The 2014 Chrysler 200 has an MSN Auto user rating of 8.3. The safety features include side airbags, front and rear head curtain airbags, and front seat-mounted torso airbags. Additional safety features include electronic stability control, antilock brakes, and daytime running lights,

For crashworthiness the basic qualities tested on all vehicles include front, side, roof, and seat with headrest. The front is tested for small overlap and moderate overlap during a crash. Not to mislead, it's important to mention that many popular cars, like Toyota Camry, carry a Top Safety Pic without the plus according to the MSN auto safety report.
