What Are the Safest Cars in 2019?

Not surprisingly, safety is one of the major concerns of consumers when buying a car. In 2015, a study conducted by Accenture (an independent research company) surveyed 7,000 drivers across seven countries to poll interest in safety mechanisms. The results showed that while car buyers are still heavily focused on the importance of automotive safety systems, they’re becoming increasingly excited over vehicles that offer more safety devices and technology for the driver, such as Driver Assistance and Advanced Communications.

  • 91% said they would use lane-changing warning systems
  • 83% prefer anti-lock brake systems
  • 73% want night vision and reversing sensors
  • 63% want fatigue warning device
  • 83% would opt for technology that automatically locates nearby businesses that could provide assistance when a vehicle breaks down
  • 75% would buy a car that automatically calls the nearest emergency center in the event of a crash
  • 73% would buy a car equipped with technology that could stop their vehicle completely and send an automatic emergency call if the driver suffers a medical attack
  • 83% of consumers would like advanced technology that warns of traffic, accidents, and delays

These more intricate features are no longer expectations of just those driving luxury vehicles. In-car technologies that are geared toward driver safety now have a mass market appeal and are weighed by most consumers during their car shopping. In this technology-driven age, manufacturers are considering these safety features in their vehicle construction as much as design, performance, and fuel efficiency.   

Child and Family Safety

We all want to feel safe as drivers in our vehicles - but more importantly - we want our passengers to feel safe, especially if they’re our families. There are currently 71 million children in America with 13 million new little ones arriving annually. With all of these lives as our precious cargo, it’s crucial to know which cars rank as the best for child safety.
