Spending more on a car doesn’t necessarily provide you better protection in an accident.
According to CNBC News “new crash tests replicating some of the most deadly head-on collisions show less expensive midsize cars do a better job protecting the driver and front seat occupants than many luxury and near luxury midsize cars.”
“This is a surprise to us,” says Adrian Lund, President of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. “It shows you don’t have to spend a lot of money to get state of the art crash protection.”
For more details on which cars did better and which ones did worse check out the CNBC story.
