Be Careful! The Most Dangerous Cars On The Road In 2017

    Posted by Ben Davidson about 1 years ago

    It's a big dilemma all car buyers have to go through, whether to buy new or used? The big thing about buying a used car is that it is much cheaper, which means that it is a more enticing offer. But you need to consider all of the safety features and whether it has tested well, which is why it's important to look at the safety record of the vehicle. There are some interesting stats you can find on http://www.cbsnews.com/news/7-of-the-deadliest-cars-on-the-road/ but here are some of the more dangerous cars that are on the road right now.


    The Ford Mustang Coupe


    While there are many advanced safety features of newer models of cars such as in the Ford Mustang from 2015 onwards, the older models that don't feature the all-important crash prevention systems are to be approached with caution. And in fact, the 2014 Mustang Coupe had a lot of roll over wrecks which is evidenced in the side crash tests made on the car by the IIHS. A Mustang may look trendy and a shining example of the style of Middle America, the older models may very well result in an accident! If you are driving one of these, it might be time to reconsider. The personal impact is also something to think about especially if you get caught up in a crash, and you may wish to consider legal advice, http://www.denenapoints.com/missouri-city-car-accident-lawyer/ can give you some details. The Mustang Coupe has been linked to 58 deaths for every 1 million registrations!


    Volkswagen Golf


    The highest rate of driver deaths come from cars in the compact or mini style, what the golf falls under, but an interesting fact is that the fatalities from this car have been the result of a multi vehicle crash. This indicates that the size is to blame. However, the Volkswagen Golf is an extremely safe car and has been ranked high in the IIHS and the Euro NCAP safety tests. This applies to the model years 2011 up to 2014, and the deaths of drivers for this car were at a rate of 63 for every 1 million registrations through these three model years.


    The Hyundai Accent Sedan


    If you are looking for a safe car, you need to avoid this one at all costs especially as the tests for the 2012 to 2014 models of this Sedan showed an issue with the driver's space, which would reveal a potential for excessive injuries if involved in a severe crash. In fact, the crash dummies in the IIHS testing showed damage to the head! 104 deaths per 1 million registrations are the statistics for the Accent Sedan, and since 2011 it has been statistically the deadliest car in America.

    Safety is always a priority, but a lot of us choose to ignore the facts and figures behind these. So if you are looking for a used car, it's always best to check the IIHS or Euro NCAP statistics for the model you are after.
