Car companies are already revealing their upcoming models for 2018! Next year’s models are gearing up for the future with sleeker designs, integrated technologies, and a wide range of features.
We’ve seen safety and automation become more and more of a focus in recent years with things like external cameras and lane assistance, but 2018 is set to take it to a whole new level. Driver assistance and automated systems are becoming the standard with new cars to keep you and your family safer on the road. Here are 5 of the safest cars for 2018.
Safest Cars in 2018
2018 Honda Odyssey
Built with families in mind, the 2018 Honda Odyssey features second-row seating that slides side to side for child seat installation and allows easy access to the third row. It’s designed to ensure that small children are seated in the safest part of the car, and also includes multiple family-friendly technologies such as CabinTalk™. This in-car PA system allows parents to talk to rear-seat passengers through headphones. Just like an airplane, all videos will pause so your kids can focus on what you have to say!
2018 Toyota Camry
Available in luxury, sport, and hybrid models, the Toyota Camry is set to feature an edgier, sleeker look inside and out, and comes with a host of standard safety features. The Toyota Safety Sense suite features multiple technologies, including automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, lane-assist, and more.
2018 Subaru Crosstrek
Announced at the Geneva Auto Show this year, the 2018 Crosstrek is the model’s first major update since 2012. With advanced on- and off-road driving capabilities and safety systems, this car offers the next-level safety features we’ve come to expect for 2018. Subaru’s EyeSight driver assistance suite acts like a second pair of eyes that monitors traffic, automatically optimizes cruise control, and helps you stay in your lane to prevent collisions.
2018 Volkswagen Atlas
This family-friendly mid size SUV offers plenty of features parents will love. With 7-passenger seating and a second row that folds forward easily, you’ll enjoy easy access even with child seats installed. This model also offers a number of advanced safety aids and driver assistance systems to keep you and your family safe on the road.
2018 Volvo XC60
Volvo sets a high bar for 2018, promising consumers one of the safest cars ever built. Safety features included Oncoming Lane Mitigation, which automatically helps drivers avoid head-on collisions, as well as Pilot Assist, designed to manage steering, acceleration, and braking on highways up to 80mph. It’s another step closer to fully automated cars.
