If keeping you and your passengers safe is paramount, then consider a used 2014 Volkswagen Passat Wolfsburg.
The Car Connection praises this particular model for its outstanding crash test scores, including a perfect five-star rating from the government. The International Institute for Highway Safety was also quite happy with the sedan, giving it top marks for side-impact, roof-strength, and moderate-overlap.
But what really sets the Passat apart from the competition is its Car-Net telematics, which comes with a long list of high-tech safety features. In the event of a collision, the system will immediately cut off the fuel supply, unlock the doors, and flash the hazard lights. It will, furthermore, automatically contact emergency services.
A special Car-Net app allows you to control a number of the system’s functions from your smartphone when the Passat is out of sight. For example, you can get remote vehicle access and, in the case of a theft, locate this VW in an instant. Nervous parents can even use geo-fencing to program speed parameters for teenage drivers.
