I have a car that is quite small (the older mazda 2, 2007-2014). I prefer small cars because although I am a capable driver, I’m not the best and driving in large cars makes me nervous (especially when it comes to parking). Also I live in a populated area so driving in a smaller car just makes driving easier for me, as sometimes the lanes get quite close to each other.
I do understand that driving in larger cars is safer when it comes to crashing. My parents are always arguing with me because they want me to get rid of my car and buy an average sized one at least. They always tell me that my car is way too dangerous to drive in because it’s just too small; they say that if I were to get into a serious crash I would probably die.
Is it that dangerous that I should switch out my car?
