If you’re currently in the market for a new 2019 vehicle, there are several factors that are ultimately going to determine which car, truck, or SUV you buy. You likely want to find a vehicle that gets good gas mileage. You also want something that will fit all the members of your family. And of course, the latest technological features, like Bluetooth connectivity, park assist, and a backup camera, never hurt. But above all else, you want your vehicle to be safe.
Here are several of the safest vehicles for 2019, as determined by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
2019 Acura RDX
The Acura RDX has long been considered one of the safest midsize SUVs on the market, and the 2019 model continues that proud tradition for Acura. The most recent RDX earned positive feedback from the IIHS for its headlights and the occupant safety that it provides during a crash. It also scored high in the crash avoidance and mitigation category.
2019 Honda Insight
The Honda Civic is still one of the most popular cars in the U.S. at the moment. But it’s the electric Insight that’s earning props from the IIHS. In crash tests, the Insight’s cabin held up well and provided occupants with more than enough protection. The vehicle’s airbags also deployed properly during testing and prevented crash test dummies from moving around too much inside of the car.
2019 Toyota Avalon
Much like the RDX, the Toyota Avalon has earned accolades from the IIHS in the past. The 2018 model was a Top Safety Pick and was heralded for its safety features last year. But the IIHS was even more impressed with this year’s model when they tested it out. It passed a passenger-side small overlap crash test. It also earned the IIHS’ Superior score for its crash avoidance and mitigation.
