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.

Best Rated VehiclesStarting Price
Subaru Legacy Sedan$20,295
Subaru Outback Wagon$23,495
Volvo S60 Sedan$32,400
Cadillac ATS Sedan$33,065
Volvo XC60 SUV$34,850
Cadillac SRX SUV$37,506
Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan$38,200

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect

TrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
