As manufacturers try to build strong and safer vehicles, safety ratings also include systems that are built in. Innovative safety systems that automatically brake the vehicle, steer you away from the sides, predict stopping distance two vehicles ahead, and more are vital for a safer drive.

While there has been an influx or larger vehicles, automakers aren’t forgetting about smaller more compact vehicles as well. Honda’s Jazz, Nissan’s Note and Toyota’s Prius C comes to mind, but then it can also include Volkswagen’s Polo and Golf models. Who doesn’t like them? They’re fun to drive and economical to boot!

10 Hybrid cars

Hybrid vehicles are all the rave nowadays, and it is rightfully so. With focus on vehicles that not only save fuel but also produce less emissions, hybrid cars are a mix of an electric motor and internal combustion engine to provide power when needed most. Best of all, with today’s plug-in hybrids, drivers can charge the vehicle and drive a maximum of 30 km on the electric motor alone.

11 Electric cars

Electric vehicles are the future. Basic electric models such as the Nissan Leaf and the BMW i3 have an average range of 250 km. Tesla’s Model S however can achieve a range of 400 km and more depending on various circumstances. The driving experience is vastly different though, its just switch on and get go in silence.
