Top 12 Deadliest Cars and Trucks

These vehicles all have safety concerns

We all love cars. The more expensive they are, the more contentment we draw from admirers of our class, prosperity, and taste. The faster they are on the road, the more exhilarating the adrenaline rush. The more popular a car is among Hollywood’s A-list luminaries, the more connected we feel to the glamorous lifestyle. However, above all these, safety remains the most paramount aspect of any car you may want to drive. This, besides the price tag, is what you should consider before buying a new car or a used one either for personal use, for a family member, or a friend.

To ensure your safety behind the wheels, Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is dedicated towards statistics and research concerning respective cars and driver deaths after every four years. This helps car lovers determine which used car to buy based on the fatality and safety – since new models can always be refurbished based on previous performance records.

How does the IIHS get the stats? By comparing the number of driver deaths per million vehicles registered. This does not include passenger deaths; only drivers. The make and maker of the automobile are tallied as well. In the previous study, cars and trucks manufactured by Chevrolet, Kia, Hyundai, and Nissan led in driver deaths in America since 2009.

From the lowest ranking to the highest, here’s the list of vehicles that proved fatal to drivers:
