What are the top five safest new cars?

I want to get the safest car possible for my teenage daughter. Price is less of a concern than her safety. What are the top five safest new cars on the market?

“The top-tier cars for safety are usually designated a Top Safety Pick+ rating by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
About 50 cars earn this honor each year, but some stand out as being the best of the best.
If you want safety, check out these five cars, which can lower your car insurance bill and keep your daughter safe (and interestingly enough, are often light on the checkbook):
  • Subaru Legacy
  • Nissan Altima
  • Honda Accord
  • Toyota Camry
  • Kia K5
You can also look at safety reviews with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. They can provide more insight into a safe vehicle for your daughter.
Making sure your daughter is properly insured is also important. Should she be in an accident, having the proper insurance will help cover any repairs and medical bills that she may incur. Try using the free Jerry to help you compare rates from the top 50 companies in just minutes.”
