Re: Which is the SAFEST seat in a car - front or rear?
I recall a study that found that if belted up, the safest seat is the centre-rear seat, or second row middle seat for a three row vehicle. This is a generic best-survival seat considering obviously that one isnít driving the car.
Front offset is the most common accident type, and while the data for the research study on which this result is based is a bit old, it will still hold true as a simple rule of thumb.
There can be endless debates that my car has load limiters only in the front, nine airbags or two and what have you, and Iím not contradicting those opinions at all. It is probably best explained as the best seat if the car only has seat belts.
