The Car Connection’s Safest New Cars of 2021

Safety might not be the sexiest attribute sought by new car shoppers, but like fuel economy, it is one of the most important.

The Car Connection’s annual list of the safest cars includes vehicles that earn five-star ratings from the NHTSA, at least a Top Safety Pick from the IIHS, and come standard with automatic emergency braking. We also credit cars with good outward vision out the front, sides, and rear, as well as vehicles that come with good optional safety features such as surround-view camera systems.
