Mazda RX-8
Scoring well above the industry average for safety risk on InformedForLife.org, the Mazda RX-8 is a sporty car with lots of style. Technically a two-door coupe, the four-seater has small, rear-hinged rear doors to ease entry and exit for rear-seat passengers. Standard safety features include side-impact and side-curtain airbags as well as anti-lock brakes. An electronic stability system is optional, but is recommended for those with safety in mind as it’s easy to find yourself zipping around thanks to its light weight and 1.3-liter rotary engine that produces 232 horsepower when paired with the six-speed manual transmission.
