Safest Luxury Vehicles

Automotive safety technologies have advanced far beyond airbags and seatbelts. Structural strength is a factor, with crash testers evaluating categories including roof strength, head restraints, side reinforcement, along with small and moderate front overlap testing. In order to earn top honors in 2017, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) will evaluate vehicle headlights as well. Factors such as glare, visibility, curve-adapted features, and auto-dim capabilities are measured. Active driver-assist safety technologies including auto-brake assist, lane-departure systems, and stability control contribute to safety ratings as well. At Blue Grass MOTORSPORT, we supply some of the safest European sedans -- Audi A4, Jaguar XJ, and Maserati Ghibli. If you’re curious about features designed to keep you safe on the road, we recommend browsing the safety highlights of these vehicles below.
