More than any other car, Crosstreks are accident-prone

Insurify, the vehicle insurance comparison website, has surveyed newer vehicles in Connecticut and the rest of the United States on how frequently they are involved in at-fault crashes. It used its database of more than 1.6 million insurance quotes to do this. The result is a list of 10 accident-prone vehicles. At the top is the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek.

When it comes to crashworthiness and crash avoidance, the Crosstrek was awarded the highest possible rating from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. It's true that in the majority of accidents, the occupants of the Crosstrek can walk away without serious injuries, but why it's so accident-prone remains a mystery. Crashes affect 25.81% of Crosstreks currently on the road.

In second place, with accidents affecting 25.7% of models, is the Honda HR-V. Its followed by the Hyundai Elantra GT, Infiniti Q50 and Subaru WRX. More drivers of this last vehicle are pulled over for speeding offenses than drivers of any other vehicle. The list continues with the Mazda3, Acura ILX, Lexus CT and Chevrolet Trax, America's one contribution to the list. It ends with another car from Hyundai, the Santa Fe Sport.

Of the nine imports, seven are Japanese and two are Korean. Accidents were found to impact 13.64% of all models on the road today.

The important thing to know is that when one is involved in a car accident, legal action may be warranted. To better understand Connecticut's rule of modified comparative negligence and the other laws that will have a bearing on a personal injury case, a victim may want to schedule a legal consultation. A lawyer could assist with the filing and negotiations.
