ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

If you're interested in a car with lots of modern safety equipment, you probably don't want to spend thousands adding each desirable option one by one. Fortunately, automakers know this, and several companies have created excellent safety feature bundles that package together today's most desirable equipment. We've listed some of our favorite new cars that offer these bundles at reasonable prices for shoppers who prioritize car safety.

2016 Ford Fusion

Ford Fusion

The Ford Fusion is one of our favorite midsize sedans on the market, as it offers handsome styling, reasonable pricing and an impressive array of engine options and trim levels. It also offers an excellent safety bundle, dubbed the Driver Assist package, which is optional on the Fusion SE ($24,000) and the upscale Fusion Titanium ($31,000). Priced at $1,625, the package includes several popular features -- automatic high beams, automatic wipers, lane-keep assist, lane-departure warning, a blind spot monitoring system and rear cross-traffic alert -- along with a luxurious heated steering wheel.

2016 Honda Accord

Honda Accord

In our minds, the Honda Accord is one of the top three midsize sedans (along with the Ford Fusion and Chevy Malibu). It has a roomy interior, spry handling and a wide range of body styles, trim levels and engine choices, one of which is a highly efficient hybrid powertrain. While Honda has previously shied away from options, the Accord offers one of the best safety bundles on the market: the Honda Sensing package, which costs a mere $1,000 and adds lane-keep assist, lane-departure warning, forward-collision warning with automatic braking and adaptive cruise control. It's available on every trim level, including the base-level Accord LX, and we consider it money well spent.

2016 Jeep Cherokee

Jeep Cherokee

Although not many shoppers think of the Jeep brand as high-tech -- it's known instead for rock climbing and off-roading -- the latest Cherokee is one of the most gadget-filled compact crossovers on the market. That's especially good news for drivers interested in safety, as the Cherokee offers two excellent packages for safety-minded shoppers. One, dubbed the SafetyTec package, is available on virtually all Cherokee models. It includes a blind spot monitoring system, rear cross-traffic alert and parking sensors for just $995. Upgrade to a Cherokee Limited ($30,100) or Cherokee Trailhawk ($32,000), and you can opt for the more impressive Technology Group ($1,495), which boasts automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning with automatic braking, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist and even an automated parallel or perpendicular parking system -- a rare feature for the class.

2016 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class

Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class

The Mercedes-Benz CLA is the brand's entry-level sedan, boasting swoopy styling, a potent turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and a reasonable starting price of just $33,000 with shipping. The CLA also offers an excellent safety bundle for all models. Available as a stand-alone option without requiring any others, it's called the Driver Assist package. It costs $2,500 extra and boasts adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist and a blind spot monitoring system. Drivers interested in further safety features can also get the CLA with excellent bi-xenon headlights or, for $2,000 extra, Mercedes' 4MATIC all-wheel drive.

2016 Subaru Outback

Subaru Outback

Like all Subaru models, the Outback wagon is offered with an impressive safety bundle that includes just about every modern safety gadget you can imagine: adaptive cruise control, a blind spot monitoring system, rear cross-traffic alert, forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist and automatic forward-collision braking. While you might expect a system like that to cost serious money, Subaru offers it on all Outback models except for the entry-level base version for just $1,995 -- a great deal that gets you virtually every safety feature on the market. Of course, the Outback also has one other great feature up its sleeve: standard all-wheel drive, which isn't offered by any of its competitors.

2016 Toyota Highlander

Toyota Highlander

The Toyota Highlander is one of our favorite midsize SUVs for its combination of handsome styling, reasonable pricing, good powertrains and an impressive list of standard and optional equipment. Included in that list of options is Toyota's Driver Technology package, available on the $41,800 Highlander Limited and standard on the Upscale Limited Platinum. It includes forward-collision warning, automatic pre-collision braking, lane-departure warning and the Toyota Safety Connect system with emergency assistance and stolen-vehicle tracking. While we wish these features were offered on lesser Highlander trims, this package alone is reason enough to upgrade to the Limited.

2016 Volkswagen Jetta

Volkswagen Jetta

While Volkswagen has been late to join the party of high-tech modern safety equipment, the Jetta now boasts just about every feature available, including adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning with automatic braking, a blind spot monitoring system and rear cross-traffic alert. Each of those features are offered in the useful Driver Assistance package safety bundle. It's available on SEL models, which start at $26,500, for just $950 extra. If you're interested in the small Volkswagen sedan, we highly recommend opting for the bundle.
