Which? names best and worst cars for visibility

Best and worst for visibility

Consumer magazine Which? has revealed the best and worst cars for visibility in its latest edition.

Which? considers ‘all-round visibility’, a score for the panoramic view around the car from the driver’s seat.

Richard Headland, Editor, Which? Car, said: “It’s important to consider visibility when choosing a car. Making the wrong choice can leave you with a car that is, at best, stressful to drive and, at worst, a safety risk."

Roomier models such as SUVs, MPVs and estates are - unsurprisingly best for all-round visibility, while small sports cars are worst.

Which? Car is free to Which? members and is now on sale at Sainsbury’s for £3.99.
