As we open the doors of our vehicles, take a seat and start the engine, safety should always be the number one priority. This is especially true if we have children, friends and loved ones buckled in next to and behind us. Operating a motor vehicle certainly comes with its set of dangers. According to a report by the U.S. Department of Transportation, there were over 36,000 fatalities on the road nationwide in 2019. Although this figure isn’t meant to scare us off the road, it is meant to turn our focus even more to safety.

As each year sees more and more licensed drivers, each of us can certainly benefit from the advantage of added safety in our vehicles. The car we choose to drive can have a significant impact. Here are some of the highest-rated 2021 vehicles in terms of safety according to IIHS.
