The most aggressive were the drivers of cars of the American brand Ram, and the owners of Swedish Volvo were the most careful. Sports cars are more likely to be the culprits of accidents than family cars.
The international insurance company Insurify has conducted an interesting study on road safety. Experts have determined which cars are most often the culprits of an accident. The results were published on the official website of Insurify.
The study analyzed 4.6 million road accidents in 2022. It turned out that Volvo drivers are the most careful and law-abiding – only 5.81% of them were the culprits of accidents. The average accident rate is 9.26%.
The owners of the American Ram brand provoke the most accidents – 10.82%. In second place – Subaru (10.75%), and in third – Volkswagen (10.46%), Mazda (10.41%), and Hyundai (10.3%) complete the top five most “aggressive” brands.
Of the car models, the Ram 3500 pickup truck is the leader – 14.14% of drivers became the culprits of an accident. It is also noted that sports models have a high accident rate – such as the Hyundai Genesis Coupe (13.89%) and the charged Subaru WRX sedan (13.17%).
At the same time, the performance of large family crossovers is much lower. Thus, only 7.81% of Volkswagen Atlas owners and 8.1% of Subaru Ascent drivers were the culprits of accidents.
