4WD + ESP = Maximum stability? - GroovyMucker
Being an average driver, and not a particularly knowledgeable one at that, it seems to me that a car with 4WD and that stability system thingy must be the safest option if you just want to get from A to B with the minimum risk and excitement (by 'excitement', I mean things like your back end slipping away, deliberately or otherwise).

Am I right? Or are there other factors which would make, say, a BMW safer than a Honda Accord, or a FWD Audi safer than a Subaru?

Correct tyres, correctly inflated - particularly in wintry conditions.

If passive safety features are seen to be a good thing, then why not active safety?

Yes, tyres/general upkeep/keeping your eyes open are all useful but things like ESP and 4WD can also save lives so surely can only be a good thing.

Where is good up North? Northeast, to be specific.

And how much does it cost?
