What are the Top 20 Safest Cars of 2007?…You May be Surprised That Some of These Cars Made the List

Forbes has gathered what they believe to be the safest new cars on the market. They searched through Consumer Reports, Department of Transportation, Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and the Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI) to compile the list of the top 20 safest cars of 2007.

What is interesting about this list is that most of the vehicles are midsize vehicles. Higher gas prices have forced many consumers to downsize their vehicles, but are they sacrificing safety in order to save a few bucks at the pump?

Here is the list:

Acura RDX

Acura RL

Audi A4

Audi A6

BMW Z4 Coupe / Convertible

Chevrolet Corvette

Ford Freestyle

Honda Civic

Jaguar XJ
