Previously, for the safety motorists bought cars of Volvo Swedish manufacturer, now there are a host of models on the car market, which have a sufficient level of safety.
Manufacturers are trying to check each of its model by known crash tests. The most authoritative and demanding tests are considered tests by the US Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). It is ordeal. The car gets a side impact, front and roof still being tested on strength. As a result, the model can receive these awards: Top Safety Pick and Top Safety Pick +. In the first case, the car has to pass all the tests with the moderate overlap and get a rating of “Good” in the frontal impact with offset. In the second case, you must already have a rating of “excellent” in the frontal crash test with a small overlap.
Of course, each year the criteria for the higher estimates are changed and manufacturers have to impose additional collision avoidance system.
The leader of the rating of the safest cars of C-class became the Japanese model – “Subaru XB Crosstrack”. The car has successfully passed all tests by the IIHS.
