These Features Will Keep Your Family Safer

Every year automakers add more standard and available advanced driver assistance technologies to many vehicles in their lineups. Some features are becoming more commonplace in all cars due to requirements by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Other features are increasingly available across cars from multiple classes.

Which cars offer the best active safety features? Do they come standard or do you have to upgrade to get them? In order to assist new car shoppers, we take a look at excellent safety features in a variety of vehicles with varying pricing. You may be surprised to learn that some inexpensive vehicles come standard with an entire suite of advanced driver assistance systems, while some expensive luxury cars require an upgrade or a package to take advantage of the best technologies.

We update our scores often as new expert reviews and data come in. For this reason, the scores in this slideshow may not be the same as the scores in our new car rankings. Additionally, not all 2019 models have a safety score yet. So, we haven’t included any completely redesigned 2019 vehicles unless they’ve been crash tested. For cars that are carryovers, we’ve included the previous year’s safety score for reference.
