I'm going to buy a car soon. It's been a while, a good while, since I've actually driven a car as I've lived in the city for a few years now because of my college. As a matter of fact I'm planning on having even more extensive driving lessons from a teacher I used to work with when I first retrieved my license, as I'm a little nervous when it comes to driving in general. I know a good amount of it takes experience, and I'm sure my fear will subside with time. I'm more so a safe driver on the road...maybe a little slow even.
In any case, safety is my primary concern and always has been. I remember telling myself that if I ever were to get a car, safety would be my main focus. As far as price range goes, let's just say I have a good amount of leverage and plan to buy a brand new, unused model. And if I do get a car I'd like to be able to teach my wife to drive one day. She has no idea how.
That being said, I've been doing some research with the safest kind of cars in America. I came across this list here
which seemed interesting, but of course I'm taking it with a grain of salt as I'm sure it really depends on the driver in any case. Although that Audi A6 looks nice. An SUV seems warranted for what we would want, as I personally like being "higher" in a car because I feel like I can see more...and the extra space would come in handy with our lifestyle...but of course that are safety risks with SUV's...I'd like to think that they are safer with collisions because they are in nature bigger, but that probably isn't necessarily the case.
Any suggestions on how to proceed with my research?
