Top 10 Safest New Cars

4. 2014 Lincoln MKZ

Another luxury sedan on the top 10 list is from American automaker Lincoln. The 2014 Lincoln MKZ comes standard with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine that gets 22 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway in front-wheel drive form. Available in all-wheel drive, that model is slightly less efficient on the highway at 31 mpg. The four-cylinder EcoBoost is good for 240 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque while a more powerful V6 is available with 300 hp and 277 lb-ft of torque (19 mpg city, 28 mpg highway FWD; 18 mpg city, 26 mpg highway AWD).

There is of course also the Lincoln MKZ hybrid with a 2.0-liter Atkinson Cycle four-cylinder powertrain with 141 hp and 129 lb-ft of torque. Both models have the same starting price of $36,085.

    Why no mention of the Tesla Model S? It literally defeated the test equipment for the rollover test. Top ratings across the board.

    You’ll need that crash protection when the Chevy’s ignition turns off in the middle of driving.

    of course Honda has the most cars.

    The reason why the Tesla Model S isn’t on the list is because it has not been tested by IIHS and the agency has no plans to do so.

    Yep, we should all drive rolling diaper pails. Nothing says exciting like a minivan. No matter how many sparks they shower it with in a commercial, it’s still a minivan. A jack of all trades…a master of none. By the way, they crash test these vehicles without anything in them. All of that loose crap in the cabin with you and your kids tends to kill as well. More space, more crap.
