The Safest Vehicles for 2018
January 4, 2018Next 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 cars available today are the safest, The Car Connection created a list of the safest cars for 2018, based on a variety of factors including crash-test results, and available safety technology.
If you're considering purchasing any of these vehicles, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to get the best price from local dealers.
