What Car? Safety Award 2020
Which of these cars will be the eventual winner? Read more below, with insights from our director of research Matthew Avery on what makes these cars the safest you can buy
"As our work with Euro NCAP shows, today's new cars provide more protection than ever in the event of a collision. It's also reassuring to see an increasing number of carmakers integrating new active safety technology that is helping to avoid collisions in the first instance. Partnering with the What Car? Safety Award – for the fifth consecutive year – allows us to salute the safest new cars on our roads and help guide the customer towards making safer choices."
"All the cars in this year's shortlist gained four or five stars in What Car? road tests and it's great to see that they're also the top performers in terms of safety. The majority of this year's contenders are also affordable to buy, and that means whichever you choose you can be reassured you're getting one of the safest new cars without breaking the bank."
