Top 10 Safest Luxury Cars For 2022

Purchasing a new automobile or truck can be a difficult undertaking, especially with so many alternatives on the market today. When most people decide to buy a new car, the budget, utility value, cost of ownership, operating costs, and even resale value are all important considerations. However, determining vehicle safety is perhaps one of the most important variables to consider when buying a new car.

Unfortunately, most people mistakenly associate vehicle safety with the availability of certain vehicle safety systems or technology, rather than the car’s crash test results or crashworthiness. Trusted safety groups such as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety can help new purchasers figure out the car’s safety rating and how it was acquired (IIHS). However, sifting through all of that data to find the best-rated vehicles may be time-consuming and unpleasant. We’ve got your back. Here is a list of some of the best luxury automobiles for safety in 2022.

10. Volvo S90

Volvo’s premium S90 flagship sedan is a strong competitor in its market, thanks to its minimalist Scandinavian design that stands out from the competition. The S90, on the other hand, foregoes sportiness in favour of a broad profile and a cosy cabin that’s ideal for a peaceful, comfortable, and relaxing ride.

The Volvo S90 was named a top safety pick by the IIHS, with ‘Good’ ratings across the board and a ‘Superior’ rating for its basic vehicle-to-vehicle crash prevention system. The large sedan’s basic vehicle-to-pedestrian collision avoidance and mitigation system, however, received a lower ‘Advanced’ grade from the IIHS.

9. Mercedes-Benz C-Class

While we wait for the revised 2022 C-Class later this year, the 2021 C-Class remains a great entry-luxury alternative that strikes a balance between athletic and soft. The current version is towards the end of its lifespan, but the outward appearance and interior design have held up well over time, with lots of modern technology to keep the premium appeal.

The C-Class was named one of the IIHS’ top safety picks, with the sedan receiving ‘Good’ overall ratings for crashworthiness and child seat anchors. Despite receiving a ‘Basic’ grade for typical vehicle-to-pedestrian front crash prevention systems, the C-crash Class’s avoidance and mitigation systems received a ‘Superior’ rating. The C-Class also received five-star NHTSA ratings overall and for side crash safety, while frontal crash and rollover safety received solid four-star ratings.

8. Lexus ES 350

Since its facelift for the 2019 model year, the Lexus ES 350 has received incremental updates that have kept it fresh. Despite lacking the athleticism of premium rivals such as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Audi A6, the ES 350 is an easygoing cruiser that offers a modest and pleasant type of luxury that many enthusiasts appreciate.

The 2022 Lexus ES 350 was named a top IIHS safety pick for its ‘Good’ crashworthiness and child seat anchor ratings, as well as the ‘Advanced’ to ‘Superior’ ratings in crash avoidance and mitigation system tests. Despite achieving four-star ratings for frontal crash and rollover safety, the NHTSA gave the ES 350 a five-star overall rating.

7. Kia Stinger

The first-generation Stinger is now as stylish as ever for 2022, thanks to Kia making the GT-Line standard amid unfounded rumours of its retirement. The sporty luxury sedan gets a turbocharged 2.5-liter inline-four capable of 300hp and 311lb-ft of torque as part of the update for the 2022 model year.

The 2022 Kia Stinger received an IIHS top safety pick for its overall ‘Good’ crashworthiness rating as well as ‘Advanced’ to ‘Superior’ crash avoidance and mitigation technologies. The huge Kia sedan also receives a five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. For frontal crash safety, however, the rating decreases to four stars.

6. Acura TLX

Acura redesigned the TLX for the last model year, and the 2022 model is now a solid entry in the midsize luxury sedan category. Although it understandably carries over unchanged, it boasts good features-per-dollar value compared to the competition in its class.

The 2022 Acura TLX is among the IIHS top safety picks, with ‘Good’ ratings across the board for crashworthiness and ‘Superior’ ratings for its crash avoidance and mitigation systems. Furthermore, the sedan ranks highly in NHTSA safety tests, with an overall five-star rating across all safety categories.

5. Volvo S60

The Volvo S60 may have a simple yet stylish exterior, but its distinctive Scandinavian interior is one of the best in its class. The S60 not only pampers its occupants with elegance, but it also offers a variety of soothing powertrain options that are both fuel-efficient and speedy.

With a ‘Good’ rating for crashworthiness and a ‘Superior’ rating for its crash avoidance and mitigation technologies, the Volvo S60 was named the IIHS’ top safety selection. The S60, on the other hand, received a five-star overall rating, five stars for side collision and rollover safety, and a four-star rating in frontal crash tests from the NHTSA.

4. Audi A6

Audi A6

Despite being one of the most expensive luxury cars in its class, the Audi A6 emanates equal parts style, performance, and technology. The sedan offers plenty of comfort and a stylish interior, with excellent Audi craftsmanship throughout.

The A6 is a top safety selection according to the IIHS, with ‘Good’ ratings for crashworthiness, crash avoidance, and collision mitigation. Aside from a four-star rating in frontal crash tests, the Audi A6 has a five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

3. Mercedes-Benz E-Class

After a 2021 model year refresh, the E-Class arrived for 2022 with minimal changes. Nonetheless, there’s a lot to love about the E-Class, including a seamlessly classy and plush interior, high-class quality material, cutting-edge technology, and an effortlessly efficient powertrain for the E450 model.

The midsize G80 car has steadily risen through the ranks of its market, undercutting BMW, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz to return savings to customers. Surprisingly, despite the reduced price, Genesis does not sacrifice outward style, opulent interior quality, or size.

The Genesis G80 is an IIHS top safety pick for 2022, with a ‘Good’ crashworthiness rating and a ‘Superior’ rating for its crash avoidance and mitigation systems. If that wasn’t enough, the G80 also achieved a five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in all of its safety testing.

1. Tesla Model 3

Tesla Model 3

The Tesla Model 3 is now one of the best-selling electric vehicles on the market, with a perfect balance of price, performance, and range. The Model 3 boasts a low centre of gravity thanks to its underfloor batteries, which allows for crisp direction changes, a solid ride, corner stability, and well-weighted accurate steering.

The Model 3 is marketed as the safest car in the world, and the IIHS appears to agree. The Model 3 was named a high safety pick for its overall crashworthiness ratings of ‘Good,’ as well as ‘Superior,’ for all of its crash prevention and mitigation features. The Model 3’s safety has also been endorsed by the NHTSA, which has given it five-star ratings in all safety categories.
