Car Safety Guide – What is the safest large SUV?

Car safety tests are conducted by NCAP to give consumers an idea of how the car will protect passengers and drivers in the event of a crash or road accident. These safety tests show how well each area of the body is protected by the features within the car so, for example, the car seats are tested for protection against head injuries and whiplash. There are a number of tests conducted on each car and the vehicle is then scored according to how safe it is likely to be in the event of an accident. The NCAP tests indicate that the safest large SUV is the Hyundai Santa Fe which comes complete with seven airbags and seven seats which makes it ideal for larger families. The car performed highly in the safety tests and was given the title of the safest SUV in its class making it extremely reliable. The car comes with electronic stability control and received a 96% score for adult safety and protection. The car’s protective measures mean that, in the event of an accident, injuries may be less severe or prevented completely. However, the safety measures cannot prevent accidents from happening.

Staying safe on the road

Use the safety features to your advantage on the road to ensure that you and your family come home without incident. Keep seatbelts tight (without being constrictive) and ensure that child safety seats are installed if travelling with young children. Always keep to the speed limit to ensure that you are able to stop quickly should someone walk into the road unexpectedly. Of course, even the safest drivers can still be involved in an accident, particularly if other drivers do not exercise caution. There may be an accident caused by another driver or even by a pedestrian which could cause an injury to you or a family member. Should this occur, you have the right to claim for compensation where there is evidence of someone else being at fault. A compensation claims company like Accident Advice Helpline can assist you with this.
