With the abundance of safety features available in modern cars, it could be confusing as to what’s available on each car. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has launched a new section on its website that helps simplify car shopping.
Starting with model year 2000 and newer, the new portion on the IIHS website allows you to select a vehicle make, and it’ll list all its models and the safety features available for that vehicle. The focus is mainly on crash avoidance features and whether or not they are available as an option, standard, or not available at all.
The six crash avoidance features listed on the website are: forward collision warning and auto brake, lane departure warning and prevention, adaptive headlights, and blind spot detection.
Best of all, it’s all presented in an easy-to-understand manner. One quick glance can tell you if the vehicle you’re interested in has certain safety features available to it.
