5 of the safest cars on the road - CBS News

1. 2016 Toyota Avalon

The Avalon, a Top Safety Pick last year, moves up a notch to Top Safety Pick Plus, given its addition of automatic braking for collision avoidance in the 2016 model. And that automatic braking technology got the top "Superior" rating in IIHS tests.
In day-to-day driving, reviewers surveyed by U.S. News praised the power and swift acceleration of Avalon's V-6 engine. They also liked its smooth ride and relatively nimble handling for a large family car. The Avalon's gas mileage is rated by the EPA for 21 MPG in city driving and 31 on the highway. Standard features include a rear-view camera, separate climate controls for driver and passenger, and an infotainment system with voice recognition.


2. 2016 Toyota RAV4

Like the Avalon, the RAV4 has stepped up to a plus rating by adding automatic braking that got a Superior rating for front crash protection. Having only recently gone on sale, this 2016 small SUV has not yet been widely reviewed.
The redesigned RAV4 features a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine rated for 23 MPG in city driving, 30 on the highway. In the all-wheel drive version, those ratings drop to 22 city, 29 highway. Standard features include a rear-view camera and a USB connection for music and mobile phone.


3. 2016 Nissan Maxima

4. 2016 Volkswagen Passat

5. 2016 Chrysler 200

I read somewhere yesterday that the auto braking worked well both at 15 mph and 25 mph. Not that I want to test ours out.

If the 2016 RAV-4 has been redesigned, does that mean its a 5th generation, 4.5?
Nope, the underlying design is the same, this is just a refresh, or as they say in the UK, a facelift. The 4.3 had a similar refresh in the 2009 model year.
