volvo xc90 safest car

Without stating the obvious, when travelling in cars, there is the risk of being involved in a collision. This cannot always be avoided, so it’s best to always be prepared. A great way to do this, is to make sure that your car provides all of the handy kit which makes travelling a lot safer.

There are a range of lease cars which contain the standard safety equipment, in which you’re able to pay fixed monthly payments to keep things affordable for you. No deposit deals are also available.

Volvo XC90
The Volvo XC90 is known for being possibly the world’s safest car. With its luxury interior, attractive good looks and high safety levels, it’s definitely the 4×4 to keep an eye on.

In the Euro NCAP tests in 2015, the Volvo XC90 wowed and achieved 100% in safety assist, with an overall rating of 5/5 stars. The XC90 features a range of ‘life-saving’ safety systems such as the Volvo’s City Safety system which automatically applies the brakes if pedestrians step in front of the car, or if the car in front suddenly stops.

As well as this, the XC90 offers the majority of these systems as standard, so there’s no need to upgrade to get maximum amount of safety. An active anti-whiplash head restraint, lane assist and speed assistance are all a selection of what’s available as standard.

Jaguar XE
The first Jaguar was produced in 1935 and from then onwards, they’re amongst the most luxurious cars on the roads today. The Jaguar XE is known for its capabilities as a company-car, due to its fun and comfortable drive, affordable price tag and low running costs – but what is it like in terms of safety?

The popular Jaguar XE has been rated 5/5 stars from being tested by Euro NCAP, but also received the impressive title of being the safest large family car as well. The XE comes equipped with a range of safety systems and features such as the automatic emergency braking and rear parking sensors. This executive saloon is well worth the money.

If you think that the Jaguar XE is the perfect car for you, whether it’s for personal use or business use, check out the lease deals which are available to pay monthly.

Honda Jazz
This supermini isn’t as popular as the Ford Fiesta and the Vauxhall Corsa, but it’s high safety rating is something it can offer which the others can’t. As well as this, the Honda Jazz is a low-cost, well-built and spacious car, which offers a lot of equipment as standard.

Honda have surprised everyone with its high adult occupant rating of 93%, which is on par with the luxury Volvo XC90. For a little supermini, the Honda Jazz really treats you with the amount of safety systems which are available as standard, including the very usual city braking. If you upgrade to the SE or EX trim, lane departure warning, intelligent speed limiter and more will be available.

Alfa Romeo Giulia saloon
Alfa Romeo is an Italian car manufacturer which have been producing quality cars since 1910. Over 100 years later, we now see at least one of their models on the road every day, in which all of them offer something different.

The Giulia saloon is one of the best Alfa Romeo’s on the market today and is capable of competing with the likes of the BMW 3-Series and the Mercedes C-Class. But the safety is where the Giulia truly excels.

When tested by the Euro NCAP, the Alfa Romeo Giulia saloon got the highest adult occupant protection score in both 2015 and 2016, with its 98% score. Both the driver and passengers are able to remain protected no matter the age, as the Giulia also produced an 81% score in the child occupant tests.
