Looking for the Safest New Vehicles? We’ve Done the Work For You

Buying a new vehicle based on its safety credentials can be confusing, but it doesn’t have to be. If you’re a regular reader of our reviews, rankings, and car buying advice, you’ve probably noticed that each vehicle on our site gets a number of scores to address specific car-shopping concerns, such as safety. For 2019, a handful of vehicles achieved perfect 10-point safety scores based on the U.S. News scoring methodology. A bunch of others came close, achieving scores in the high 9s. If you’re narrowing down your new vehicle search with safety as one of your top priorities, we recommend you start here, where we’ve compiled the best candidates.

On the following slides, we’re counting down from good to best, based on each vehicle’s U.S. News safety score and the number of safety features included. For each vehicle, you’ll learn about its Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) crash test results and other information to help you make the right decision for you. We have also included crash test information from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) when applicable. Now, it’s time to take a look at the safest vehicles for sale in 2019.
