No matter where you and your family are traveling, safety is always the first concern. The actions and competency of the other drivers on the road are unpredictable, making it more crucial that your family vehicle is rated one of the best in safety.
If you’re looking for a new vehicle to tote around your most cherished lifemates, you’ve stumbled upon an information gold mine. Here is a brief look at a few of the safest cars for you and your family in 2019.
The Honda Insight managed to receive the 2018 Top Safety Pick rating, and 2019 looks just as safe. The Insight is an electric model created from the inspiration of the super popular build of the Civic.
In crash tests, the cabin of the Insight maintained its integrity rather well, and the airbags always deploy just when they were intended. If you were to get into an accident in the Honda Insight, you’d be as safe as possible. Crash test dummies also showed over and over again that the vehicle kept their heads safe from impact on the sides.
Last year’s version of the Acura RDX rated high on the safety scales, but the 2019 model is even better. This midsize luxury SUV is large enough to carry and protect the whole family. If you are planning on going camping, you may want to add in an SUV tent for the family too so you have all you need to make a fun time of it.
The headlights of the vehicle even rated high on safety inspections. In terms of avoiding a crash, the Acura RDX earned the highest possible rating of “Superior.”
The newer edition of this vehicle also outperformed is predecessor in safety ratings. The headlights were one of the most influential aspects of such a high safety rating as their efficiency is unmatched. Crash Avoidance and Mitigation were some of its highlighted safety accomplishments, so you can rest assured that your kids are safe riding in the back of this SUV.
The Pilot took last year’s top safety pick away from IIHS, granting a “Superior” rating in the realm of crash prevention systems. Most ratings for the Honda Pilot were Good, Advanced, or Superior, but there was one “Acceptable” rating for the passenger-side small overlap test.
When there is mention of the passenger-side small overlap test in terms of safety, they’re talking about how the vehicle handles the impact of hitting a telephone pole or being t-boned by another vehicle. This section of testing often knocks vehicles out of the top safety ratings, but that’s not the case for the Toyota Avalon.
Vehicles are also subject to having trouble in the department of headlight ratings. If you drive an Avalon, you’ll have no issue seeing the roadways in the dark.
