When shopping for a new car, it’s important to consider your needs. Who are you as a driver? Or, in this case, who is it that’s going to be driving the car you’re shopping for?

As vehicles become available, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety puts them through their battery of tests to determine just how safe they are. The safety ratings that come as a result of these tests are some of the most highly regarded by consumers on the entire market.
