The auto insurance comparison site Insurify recently conducted a survey regarding the accident frequency of newer model cars. The Subaru Crosstrek was deemed the worst, being involved in more at-fault crashes in Arizona and across the U.S. than any other car. However, the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek has also garnered the highest safety rating from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety.
Using a database of more than 1.6 million insurance quotes, Insurify found that accidents had affected 25.81% of all Crosstreks on the road. No. 2 in the survey was the Honda HR-V with 25.7%. The rest of the top 10 list included vehicles from automakers like Hyundai, Infiniti, Mazda, Acura and Lexus.
The only American car on the list, the Chevrolet Trax, came in ninth. A second Subaru vehicle, the Subaru WRX, came in fifth. This vehicle, incidentally, has been found to have the most speeding offenses. Hyundai was the other automaker with two vehicles on the list -- the Elantra GT and Santa Fe Sport.
Accoding to Insurify, accidents have affected 13.64% of all the car models on the road today. Crosstreks are fuel-efficient and relatively inexpensive, and most of the accidents that they are involved in are minor.
In the event of a motor vehicle crash, it's important to find out who was at fault and to what degree. This will affect the chances of a victim filing a successful injury claim. If they decide to file, the victim may want to see a lawyer first. With legal representation, a plaintiff may seek a fair settlement covering medical bills and other losses.
