No type of collision is the ‘safest,’ let alone ideal. While larger cars may seem like they offer more protection, newer cars are actually some of the safest on the road regardless of size.
Keep these factors in mind if you’re looking to upgrade your vehicle.
Bigger or Smaller Cars?
There are pros and cons to each when it comes to the weight and size of the vehicle that gets into an accident. Bigger vehicles tend to be heavier and can potentially absorb more of the impact than a smaller vehicle can. Consequently, bigger vehicles can have a higher momentum and can cause more damage if traveling fast.
Consider a Modern Vehicle
If your vehicle is more than 10-20 years old, you could be missing out on key modern safety features. Modern vehicles are packed with state-of-the-art technology that can minimize injuries and even risk of death. Some of these safety features can be:
- Surrounding airbags
- Safety warnings for drivers (blind-spot, lane change, etc)
