3 of the safest luxury cars


When choosing a new car, safety features are usually one of the most important factors for buyers. You don’t have to sacrifice luxury for safety. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave say these 3 luxury vehicles are Top Safety Picks. Stop by Global Motorsports in Cool Springs or Belle Meade to test drive these cars.

IIHS conducts vehicle tests to determine crashworthiness — how well a vehicle protects its occupants in a crash. It also rates vehicles for front crash prevention, systems that warn the driver or brake automatically to avoid or mitigate a frontal collision. The vehicles that perform best in the tests qualify for TOP SAFETY PICK, which has been awarded since the 2006 model year.
