Crash

Obviously still best to avoid a collision in the first place.

Every year the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) crash tests new cars, trucks, and SUVs in order to help provide you, the consumer, with the best possible safety information. Which new vehicles managed to score a superior rating for 2016 in frontal crash safety? The IIHS "rates vehicles as basic, advanced or superior for front crash prevention depending on whether they offer autobrake and, if so, how effective it is in tests at 12 and 25 mph." A total of 14 vehicles earned a "superior" rating and they include the following:

2016 Acura ILX, MDX, RDX and RLX/ 2016 BMW X3 (when equipped with a camera- and radar-based system)/ 2015 Chrysler 300/Dodge Charger/ 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class (both Collision Prevention Assist Plus and Pre-Safe Brake equipped versions)/ 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA (both Collision Prevention Assist Plus and Distronic Plus equipped versions/ 2015 Mercedes-Benz E-Class/ 2016 Mazda6 and CX-5
