March 9, 2017Next 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, Edmunds.com compiled a list of vehicles they deem the safest for 2017, based on a variety of factors including crash-test results, and safety technology.
