Safety is always a top priority when looking for your next new or used vehicle. Those searching for the safest used cars don’t have to look much further. We at Route 2 Auto Sales are dedicated to helping used car shoppers find exactly what they need out of their next vehicle, especially when it comes to safety. Shoppers in Warwick, Cranston, and South County should read ahead to learn more about four safety-minded used cars including the Ford Fusion, the GMC Acadia, the Honda Accord, and the Volkswagen Tiguan!
Ford introduced advanced safety features in the Fusion early on, including a whole slew of them in the 2017 model. In this model-year, the Fusion sports more than 10 advanced safety features including a Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane Keeping Assist, and even rain-sensing windshield wipers. These come in addition to the Fusion’s many airbags and Electronic Stability Control, which automatically adjusts the power distribution in your wheels to keep you steady in all driving conditions.
For many years, the GMC Acadia has received high safety ratings including a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in 20151 and a 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety2.
These ratings were earned by the Acadia’s lengthy menu of available safety features including Forward Collision Warning. This feature constantly scans the road in front of you for changes in traffic. If it detects a slowdown ahead, it’ll let you know immediately, so that you can get stopped in time.
In 2016, Honda introduced its Honda Sensing® safety features suite, which skyrocketed the 2016 Honda Accord’s reliability and safety scores. This safety suite includes…
- Cross Traffic Monitor
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™
- Traffic Sign Recognition
- Blind Spot Information
- Lane Keep Assist System
- Lane Departure Warning
- Road Departure Mitigation
- Adaptive Cruise Control Low Speed Follow
- Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control
Any model year of the Honda Accord from 2016 onward offers this impressive suite of features.
The Volkswagen Tiguan is known for being somehow spacious and comfortably compact. However, the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan also sports quite a few safety features that you won’t want to miss out on, including Adaptive Headlights. This feature makes sure that you’re able to see in the dark without having to worry about turning your high beams off and back on when another car passes.
