Play It Safe: Safest Cars of 2018

There are many factors to consider when choosing a new car which is right for you.

The marketplace is filled with a wide variety of car brands and styles which means that narrowing down the perfect car can take a while. Shopping for a new car often means thinking about the type of lifestyle you have on a day-to-day basis.

Everything from the city you live in to the job you work can play a role in what you drive off the lot. The necessity of a family of five who has to commute into the inner city on a daily basis won’t exactly be similar to a single millennial who lives an urban lifestyle. While the type of vehicle you drive can say a lot about your personality and lifestyle, there is one thing that you should consider no matter what.

Having a car which keeps you as safe as possible should be one of the top things you check when looking at a new car to buy. Manufacturers understand this and are consistently improving on their latest models to ensure that customer safety is a priority.

We’ve investigated some of the most reputable car and insurance websites from across the web to compile a collection of some of the safest cars of 2018.

Honda Accord

Honda cars have consistently been known for their attention to safety, and the 2018 Honda Accord is no exception to this trend.

This vehicle received five stars in all NHTSA-administered tests and has consistently been rated as one of the safest cars of 2018. While its ratings can be attributed to typical safety features like front crash prevention features and headlight performance, the 2018 Honda Accord is loaded with additional safety features.

Lane keeps assist, traffic sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, road departure mitigation, and forward collision control are just some of the features that make this car one of the safest of 2018.

Toyota Camry

Toyota’s latest addition continues a strong history of mindfulness and affordability.

The 2018 Toyota Camry is a completely redesigned vehicle with one of the highest safety ratings of all 2018 cars. It received five stars in the NHTSA crash test in addition to being IIHS Top Safety Pick.

What makes the Camry stand out from other cars is that it has more standard safety features than most mid-size cars. While you’ll still need to purchase safety bundle add-ons for more extensive features like automatic high beams, lane warning systems, steering assists, and pedestrian detection, all models come with a rear-view camera and the Toyota Safety Sense P.

The 2018 Toyota Camry is the winner of U.S. News’ Best Midsize Car for Families and Best Midsize car for Money in addition to being one of the safest cars of the year.

Kia Cadenza

Kia is a brand which has consistently been making improvements to how its products are received in the marketplace.

A lot of this can be attributed to updated designs and with that comes their focus on higher safety rating. The 2018 Kia Cadeneza is an IIHS Top safety pick. Its base models come equipped with a rear camera and is the only standard safety feature.

The CCadenza'shigh rating comes from the available additions which include outstanding safety features like 360-degree camera with parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alerts. For a large sedan, it is one of the highest-rated vehicles of 2018.

Kia Sorento

The Kia Sorento is another addition from the South Korean car marker which makes our list.

The 2018 model has been upgraded from its predecessors, with additions that have ranked it among this year’s top vehicles. It is the No. 1 ranked Midsize SUV by U.S News. However, it was its passenger-side crash tests and updated headlights that have moved it to the top safety lists.
