Cars With the Best Safety Technology

Next to price, the most important characteristic a car buyer looks for is safety. The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety recently rated the systems vehicles have to help prevent front-end crashes. The test reportedly looks at how well a vehicle's forward-collision warning and autonomous-breaking system works, and how effective the system is at avoiding collisions at both 12mph and 25mph.

Through these new tests, seven 2014 models -- all with starting prices under $40,000 -- reportedly ranked "superior", the highest rating. Vehicles included the Subaru Legacy Sedan, Cadillac ATS Sedan, and Volvo XC60 SUV.

Considering adding one of these safe cars to your garage? Make sure to use the TrueCar to get the best price.
