Car Safety New vs. old
Go for a newer car wherever possible as only 10% of cars made in 2003 had a 5 star safety rating. Newer cars sold from 2015 to 2016, 87% of them did have a 5 star safety rating. If you do need to get an older model, make sure it is fitted with important safety features like electronic stability control and curtain side-airbags.
Colour can matter
When it comes to car colour, You may think black looks good, but white could save your life. Lighter colours improve the visibility of your car to other road users.
Four wheel drives
4WD vehicles may appear strong and indestructible. Due to their relatively higher centre of gravity, they handle differently and are more likely to be involved in rollover type crashes. If you are interested in a 4WD, weigh up all the safety features like electronic stability control and curtain side-airbags.
