Dear Meliton,
I would like to thank you for this opportunity for allowing me to buy a new car with $20,000. I have taken into account your restrictions about the safety ratings of the car. Inside this letter, I have written a report on as to why this car is the perfect one for me, allowing with physics concepts behind its multiple safety features.
My chosen car is the 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer GSR CJ Manual MY15. It fits in the cost range, as it costs $17,200-$19,200. Hopefully you will consider this as my potential first car. Thank you very much.

Sincerely,
Roberto Quesada

The Mitsubishi Lancer has a number of safety features which are proven to increase overall safety along with increasing the chance of survival in an accident.
Seatbelts
Definition= A seat belt is a vehicular safety device designed to secure the occupant of a vehicle against harmful movement that may result during a collision or a sudden stop.
Seatbelts are used so that the occupant is not thrown forward during a vehicle crash, as a result of inertia. Inertia is the tendency to stay in the same state of either moving, or not moving, and because of this, anything inside of a car when it crashes wants to continue to move forward. Seatbelts restrict the space for the occupant to move, keeping them in their place, and stopping them from moving forward. Seatbelts also spread the load exerted on the body to the areas that can handle the force, such as the chest and hips.
Seatbelts are one of the major safety features of a car, as without them, a person is almost certain to die in a collision. Seatbelts however, increase the chance of survival by 45%.
As seen from the images below, seatbelts decrease both force and g’s applied on their user during a collision, decreasing the strain put on their bodies.
