The Deadliest Cars on The Road Today

Most Dangerous Cars in the World

It’s possible that your car is attempting to murder you… You could be the proud owner of a death trap, that’s right! Or if you’re looking for one! And you’re not even aware of it!

While safety features have helped to cut driver fatalities to an astounding degree, there are still some cars out there that you should be aware of. And, thankfully, your Ideal friends will assist in keeping you and the rest of the planet safe.

So there you have it: today’s DEADLIEST automobiles on the road!

1. Chevrolet Corvette

What’s the make of the car that’s been following me for the previous five miles? It’s most likely a Chevrolet Corvette. Yeah, I know, we always advocate inexpensive ‘Vettes here at Ideal… However, if you’re looking for one, you should be aware of what you’re getting yourself into.

‘Vettes, you see, are the car of choice for people who have a need for speed but don’t have a lot of money or sense! As a result, the Corvette is undeniably one of today’s most dangerous automobiles.

There’s nothing wrong with the design of this speed machine; it’s the people who drive it that are the problem. The phrases “reckless” and “hot-headed” come to mind when describing a typical Corvette driver.

And that’s likely because people who buy them, just aren’t equipped to handle what the Vette has to offer. They’re fast, powerful, and easily maneuverable, but when you let the need for speed take over, well let’s just say, going past the limits in a Corvette is a bit different than a Toyota Camry.

So by all means, go out and get yourself a Chevy Corvette. But if you do so, maybe consider taking a high performance driving class as well…

2. Hyundai Genesis Coupe

Any automobile on the road today should have undergone extensive testing to guarantee that you and your passengers are safe. Unfortunately, there are cars on the road today that have gotten around these testing and are now big safety threats. (Provigil) The Hyundai Genesis Coupe is one of them.

The IIHS and the NHTSA did not require this deadly driving machine to go through the whole testing process, and the results have been terrible. With a death rate of almost 67 deaths per million registrations, it’s a complete wonder why this car is still on the road.

What’s scarier than that? The majority of these collisions involved numerous vehicles, with rollover accidents accounting for around 15% of the total. That implies the Genesis Coupe is a danger not only to the driver, but to everyone else on the road as well.

Hyundais are usually relatively safe cars, but this one seems to have slipped through the cracks.

So, if you spot this whip in your rearview mirror, go ahead and let it pass you as swiftly as possible.

3. Delorean DMC-12

The Delorean DMC-12, made famous by Back to the Future, has become an American icon. But, unlike in the movies, you might not want to take one to 88 mph…

The Delorean’s characteristic look stems from its unique design, which is also the source of its safety issue. Drivers who have been in rollover accidents have no way of getting out because to those futuristic gullwing doors! You could be imprisoned inside a Delorean if you get into a catastrophic accident! Which implies you’re very much up a creek without a paddle if your crash happens where no one sees it… especially when you consider that if you’re human-sized like me, the windows are too small to wriggle out of.

Fortunately, the Delorean isn’t a car you see on the road very often these days, partly because it’s effectively a prison cell on wheels, and partly because it’s actually not a very good automobile.

Being imprisoned inside a fully functional Delorean while waiting for a crew to get you out is bad enough, but being trapped inside one while waiting for a crew to get you out is even worse. That’s a fate that’s even worse than death.

Do yourself a favour and avoid using a Delorean to travel back in time.

4. Ford Mustang

The Mustang is a terrific car for younger drivers who want to go fast, but it’s also a bad car for younger drivers who want to go fast. Allow me to explain.

The Mustang is known as the “crowd killer,” which seems like a good enough cause to remove this vehicle off the road. If you didn’t know, it got its moniker from its habit of diving head-first into people when exiting a car show… It’s not simply risky for pedestrians who aren’t paying attention.

The Ford Mustang is responsible for 58 driver deaths per million registrations, with single-car crashes accounting for more than two-thirds of these collisions, with many of them including the vehicle rolling over.

As a result, you’d probably hope that these vehicles have strong rollover protection ratings. NOPE. Mustangs do particularly poorly in side crash testing, according to IIHS tests.

Overall, it appears that Mustangs are an excellent way to become terribly wounded or killed. But, well, that was entertaining while it lasted, right?

5. Chevrolet Camaro

It’s no surprise that people who want to rule the road drive a Chevy Camaro, with its sleek look that only testifies to the power that lies beneath.

But it is precisely because of this car’s massive V8 engine and rear-wheel drive arrangement that it is so deadly. You’d think Chevy would be aware that combining these two qualities would sentence people to death, and perhaps they were aware but didn’t care.

They can’t play dumb now, though, because the Camaro has caused 5.5 deaths per million miles, which is an unacceptably high number for any vehicle.

And, in case you didn’t notice, this is the third time an American brand has made the list, and it won’t be the last… As a result, you should be aware of these American-made death machines by now.

I’m not implying that all domestic automobiles are doomed to fail, but perhaps the horsepower conflicts between Americans should be replaced by a safety war.

6. Subaru BRZ

Let’s start with the simple truth that if you intend to wander, you must be aware of the potential implications before signing up. Unfortunately, many first-time drifters are unfamiliar with the term “CAUTION.” And it is for this reason that the Subaru BRZ has been dubbed “one of the world’s most deadly vehicles.”

Just because you’ve seen Tokyo Drift seven times and memorised every line doesn’t mean you’re ready to hit the road and start drifting like a bonafide lunatic. Drifting is, without a doubt, a lot of fun. No, drifting isn’t simple. And don’t say I didn’t tell you if you try to drift around a corner in a BRZ and wind up striking the blunt side of a telephone pole.

The Subaru BRZ is responsible for 6.9 deaths per billion miles driven, owing in part to individuals driving it like they’re in Grand Theft Auto.

Enjoy your driving adventure, but don’t go crashing down a cliffside in the heart of Hollywood Hills.

7. Ford Explorer

Imagine riding a hippopotamus on ice skates, and you’ll get a sense of what it’s like to drive a Ford Explorer. This is a LARGE car, yet the majority of its weight is concentrated in the top half of the vehicle, making rollovers a common occurrence.

The Explorer was designed in the same way as the Bronco II, which was not a particularly safe vehicle. The Explorer’s top-heaviness, on the other hand, was a serious design flaw. Even after attempting to repair the problem, the drivers of this deadly trap continued to roll over like a well-trained dog.

However, Explorer drivers aren’t the only ones that have issues. Low-pressure tyres make it all too easy to lose tread while off-roading, causing you to get too near to an unsuspecting tree.

People died left and right while driving Explorers in the 1990s, and while those numbers have decreased in the previous decade, I would still not recommend driving this top-heavy tumble machine.

Despite its name, it’s generally best not to take one of these cars anywhere other than your driveway.
