Find the safest cars and vehicles and the most dangerous cars and vehicles

WHY?



Why bother showing the SAFEST vehicles?

.

Most modern passenger vehicles are much safer than their predecessors. Despite their design improvements, however, 2.6 million people were injured and 37,461 lives were lost on U.S. roads in 2016an average of 7,100 injured and 102 killed each day.

.

There are two agencies in the United States that test vehicles in their labs so you can learn what happens to crash-test dummies in simulated crashes and select those vehicles with the best survival rates. These tests reveal that there are significant differences in crashworthiness among some vehicles.

.

There are also significant differences in fatality rates among vehicles based on their class and weight differences, however, this compatibility factor is not included in the safety ratings published by these agencies and must be considered using actual fatality data correlations. .

.

So, how do you select the safest vehicles?

.

STEP 1: FOR VEHICLES RATED 5-STARS OVERALL BY NHTSA ELIMINATE ANY THAT ALSO RECEIVED LESS THAN 5 STARS IN ANY INDIVIDUAL CRASH TEST OR LESS THAN 4 STARS FOR STATIC ROLLOVER.

.

STEP 2: FOR VEHICLES RATED TOP SAFETY PICK BY IIHS ELIMINATE ANY VEHICLE THAT ALSO SCORED LESS THAN 5 POINTS FOR FRONTAL CRASH PREVENTION.

.

STEP 3: IDENTIFY THE VEHICLES APPEARING ON BOTH LISTS FROM STEPS 1 AND 2. THESE ARE THER MOST CRASHWORTHY VEHICLES SINCE BOTH NHTSA AND IIHS AGREE.

.

STEP 4: ELIMINATE ANY VEHICLE WITH A CLASS/WEIGHT THAT HAS BEEN SHOWN TO CORRELATE WITH ABOVE AVERAGE DRIVER FATALITY RATE. THE RESULTING LIST OF VEHICLES ARE THE SAFEST BASED ON CRASH TESTING AND FATALITY DATA.

.

 

     I created this website to enable consumers to easily identify the safest vehicles.
