Drive Safe: The Big 5 Manufacturers

Drive Safe: The Big 5 Manufacturers

In today’s world of cars, every manufacturer is competing with each other with regards to who can produce the safest automobile. And since technology is improving at such a rapid rate, this is something which continues to change year after year. With this in mind, let’s look at the top five manufacturers this year and just what it is that has made them so safe.


There is a big difference in the price point in the Audi range. And with this difference comes varying levels of safety rating – though all of them rank pretty highly on the list. However, even the most basic Audi models now come with a rearview camera and parking sensors so you know that you are in pretty good hands.

Some of the more advanced models such as the A4 use pre-collision braking when there are any impending collisions.


Mazda have always been pioneering when it comes to safety and the latest brands are certainly no different. And they also have the extra advantage of being more affordable than a lot of other big car brands out there these days.

Rearview cameras have become standard and other standard and optional features include traffic sign recognition and adaptive cruise control which controls speed and distance from the car in front.



As you will already be well aware, BMW is a huge brand that encompasses a wide range of different vehicles from SUVs to sports cars but they all seem to do well when it comes to safety.

The individual safety features really do vary depending on the model but some of the common ones include forward collision warning and parallel park assist so the work of squeezing into a small space is taken away from you.



Mercedes-Benz tends to have deployed its safety features much quicker than many of its competitors so it makes sense that it still comes near the top of the list. Attention assist is one of its pioneering features which helps to monitor the driver for signs of tiredness.

Even though this is out there, avoiding a car accident is never a sure-fire thing so it is worth contacting Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P.C. if one has happened to you. Some of the other features that have proven to be popular include pedestrian detection and blind spot monitoring.


It will be no surprise for car enthusiasts that Volvo still tops the list – and it is still working toward its Vision 2020 initiative of no injuries or fatalities by that year.


Volvo’s mantra has always very much been about quality over quantity and it wants to make sure that safety is there across the range. It is also making big steps towards autonomous driving with its Pilot Assist option which brings together adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist.

So, these are the big five and a little bit more about what it is that makes them so great. If you are on the verge of buying a new car, hopefully this will help to put safety at the forefront of your min.

All-new Jaguar F-Type Coupe & R

5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
