Safest Cars to Buy 2011: List of Models and Prices

By Alan Ng - Jan 27, 2011

If you are looking to buy a new car for the family this year, it is a good bet that you are after a model which will combine the important safety elements with a car that looks good on the road as well.

If you fall into that category, you’ll be pleased to know that we have a list of new 2011 models which have gained a following due to their excellent safety aspects.

That list comes to you courtesy of William Browning from Yahoo, and the first car he has picked out is the 2011 Hyundai Sonata – a model which has been voted the best safety car by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. It’s available to buy now from $19,000 and you can view the official website here for a list of features and tech demos.

Another car on the list is the Chevrolet Cruze (around $17,000), which is one of the safest cars to buy this year due to being awarded a 96 out of 100 score, for adult occupant protection by the European New Car Assessment Program. We’ve taken a look at the website ourselves, and we can tell you that the Chevrolet Cruze has a higher adult occupant score than such models as the Audi A1 (90), the Nissan Micra (78) and the popular Volkswagen Passat which scored a 91.
