The Safest New Vehicles
Next to price, safety is the most important attribute consumers look for when buying a vehicle. After all, the main purpose of a car is to transport you and your most precious cargo, and knowing your vehicle has a top safety rating can give you peace of mind.
To help you figure out which vehicles available today are the safest, Forbes compiled a list of vehicles they deem the safest, based on a variety of factors including IIHS crash-test results, and safety technology including auto-braking.
If you're considering purchasing any of these vehicles, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to get the best price from local dealers.
Safest Vehicles According to IIHS Crash Tests
|Lexus ES 350||$39,895|
|Mercedes-Benz E-Class (sedan)||$52,150|
|Toyota Prius Prime||$27,100|
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
