Car Safety Features and Technologies

  Safety can never be over emphasized when it comes to any vehicle and luxury vehicles are at the top of the list for safety features. A vehicle with a high price tag should be able to adequately protect the passengers within it.
  Safety can be explained in two categories.
  Active Safety - Features and technologies used to avoid collisions. These can be improvements on existing features or totally new features.
  • Passive Safety - Features and technologies used to protect passengers should a collision occur in extreme circumstances.
