The Top 5 "Safest" Cars On The Road

Standards that simply measure auto passenger safety based on crash tests have been determined to be ineffective. The U.S government and several private auto safety-rating agencies have moved beyond crash tests as a means of determining the safety of vehicles. These are some of the safest cars on the road today.

2016 Toyota RAV 4
