7 Cars get top marks in the high-tech security check

NEW YORK: seven medium-sized vehicles earned the top score in a test of the insurance industry in the high-tech security features, to prevent the front end collisions.

The Cadillac ATS and SRX, Subaru legacy and Outback, Mercedes c-class and Volvo S60 and XC60 won "superior" ratings in tests Insurance Institute for highway safety.

The Institute tested 74 medium-sized cars and SUVs from model years 2013 and 2014th those who are equipped with front collision warning and automatic braking systems typically better. The systems can alert either the driver or the car automatically to stop when they detect a possible collision.

The Institute of IIHS, a non-profit research group of insurance companies has pushed funded, Federal agencies and automakers require or offer new safety systems such as antilock brakes as an option. The Group urges auto manufacturers to strengthen front end crash resistance.

Since the frontal-crash systems offer car manufacturers more and more models as the price of the technology falls. The systems use radar, cameras, Ultrasonic sensors and computer local objects before cars and determine whether a collision is possible. The system applies the brakes themselves, or a driver can be warned to take action.

The IIHS said that its data Institute usually are not found that the devices help to avoid crashes, but even so, drivers auto insurance companies offer discounts for people who buy them.

Insurance companies say, how the systems in certain models of more popular insurance claims will go back. These models will eventually see a reduced price.

In the tests, six other cars received second-best 'Advanced' reviews, while 25 'basic' get reviews. A further 36 received no rating because they had not the systems or their systems not the Institute standards.

The Institute says that the tests will help people who decide, what features to buy and to encourage car manufacturers to adopt the new technology faster.
