Here Are The 15 Safest Cars Money Can Buy in 2018

January 16,2018

Let’s face it, we’ve all been searching for that perfect car that has the maximum quality of safety so that we wouldn’t worry much. With over 3,000 deaths every day due to car accidents, it’s tough not to worry about it. There are tons of cars out there that are deemed safe, yet even those lack some safety features as some cars can even be sold without airbags installed.


The International Institute for Highway Safety (aka IIHS) crash cars to assess their safety. Tests include frontal and side impacts, roof strength and child seats ease of use. Grades given vary between Good, Average, Marginal and Poor. Based on the overall rating, they’ve picked and awarded 15 cars as top safety picks for 2018.


Keep in mind that the cars tested might have different specs/more safety features than the ones we get in the Lebanese market. But it’s still an indicator as a car is not only judged by its safety features, but also by the position of the driver after impact.



So, without further ado, here are 2018’s picks of the safest cars out there for you to make an informed decision: 


Small cars
Kia Forte/Cerato Sedan
Kia Soul
Subaru Impreza
