We buy cars because we need them. Cars are a necessity, but decisions that go into buying a car have developed far beyond that. Naturally, for most, buying a car is a financial decision, but image seems just as important.
However you explain yourself why you bought a car, car’s safety should be an important part of that function. You might be an excellent driver but what goes on the road is never just about you.
Below are links to some scary looking crash tests. (Small overlap crash test to be exact.)
Out of 4 door sedans the car that tested the best: Honda Civic; the worst Kia Forte. Out of small SUV’s Subaru Forester was the safest.
