If you’re shopping for a new car, it’s often things like the make, model, style, price, and even the vehicle’s color that first come to mind when making your purchasing decision. Something that can frequently be overlooked, is the vehicle’s overall safety rating. In this blog, we’re going to take a look at some of the safest vehicles worth your consideration in 2024.
Safe Cars to Consider
2024 Subaru Impreza
Among the most reliable and longest lasting car markers on the market, Subaru again impresses with the 2024 Impreza. The latest model comes with a bevy of standard safety features like lane departure warning and lane departure prevention. It’s one of the safest cars on the road, scoring the highest grades in crashworthiness, crash avoidance & mitigation, and seat belts & child restraints.
2024 Genesis G80
Luxury isn’t the only thing you’ll be getting when you purchase the 2024 Genesis G80, as it’s at the top of its class in safety as well. After the redesign in 2021, the G80 has kept the same look and feel but improved its protective features, like standard front crash prevention from vehicle-to-pedestrian for both day and night.
Safe SUVs to Consider
2024 Hyundai Ioniq 5
Hyundai makes an appearance on our list with the 2024 Ioniq 5 and for good reason. Since its introduction in 2022, it has been a mainstay on most top safety picks. The Ioniq continues to score the best marks possible when it comes to driver injury measures, and scored “good” across the board for crashworthiness.
2024 Genesis GV60
Genesis returns to our list but this time in one of the safest SUVs around with the 2024 GV60. As always, Genesis seamlessly blends style, luxury, and safety into one package. The GV60 is a bit smaller than another model from the automaker we’ll mention later, but its safety features are again highlighted by standard front crash prevention systems for day and night driving.
2024 Mazda CX-90
The 2024 Mazda CX-90 is an SUV that offers magnificent comfort, but at a bit more affordable price (without sacrificing safety). In every test measured within crashworthiness, crash avoidance & mitigation, and seat belts & child restraints, the CX-90 received the highest grades possible.
2024 Mitsubishi Outlander
The legendary Japanese automaker makes its debut on our list with the 2024 Mitsubishi Outlander. Aside from being the most affordable SUV listed, the 2024 Outlander returns after a year away from the market with redesigns to the “rear side thorax airbag to improve occupant protection in side impact crashes.” This change improved its overall safety score, making it top pick in 2024.
2024 Audi Q8 e-tron
Audi has long been a brand synonymous with luxury and innovation. The 2024 Q8 e-tron continues to support that idea. It comes loaded with tons of standard safety features, and a top IIHS safety rating that applies to the Audi e-tron Sportback and the Audi Q8 Sportback e-tron models as well.
Safe Trucks to Consider
2024 Ford F-150
America’s best-selling truck is the F-150, and the 2024 model is also one of America’s safest trucks. The F-150 comes with several standard and available safety/drive assist features that make it an easy pick by Car and Driver Magazine’s for safest trucks in 2023.
2024 Toyota Tundra
The 2024 Toyota Tundra continues Toyota’s fantastic record of making some of the safest vehicles on the road. The latest model is packed with all kinds of class-leading safety features like standard forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking, standard lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist, and standard adaptive cruise control.
