Do fuel efficient cars provide more safety?  As a general rule and strictly by that definition, not necessarily.  But, can you buy a fuel efficient car that is also very safe?  Absolutely.  With things like fuel efficiency, safety, reliability, longevity of life, durability, ease of use, and ease of maintenance being top selling factors for cars, it makes sense to try to find a model of car that meets all of these points.  Thankfully, with the current strength of the emphasis that there is on things like fuel economy and safety for passengers and drivers, it is not difficult to find a car that is both fuel efficient and very safe.

In fact, in one way, fuel efficiency and safety often do align themselves very well.  For example, very safe cars will often be things like mini-vans, crossovers, compact SUVs, and luxury sedans.  Cars that tend to not be as safe are sports cars and two door coupes and convertibles.  Coincidentally, cars in the first category often get good fuel economy, whereas cars in the second category not so much.
