No more bursting bottles!

I like to keep a case of bottled water in my car, for emergencies and inconveniences. During the winter months, the bottles tend to freeze (and thaw). What is the most burst-proof brand of bottled water, or what sort of shape/style of bottle should I be looking for?
- I know that a straight-sided jar is probably ideal, but I don’t really want to can my own water, even though it might be better from a leaching-plasticizers perspective.
- I am not sure whether a lightweight bottle (more flexible?) or a heavier-weight bottle (stronger?) makes more sense.
- I am happy to take recommendations based on careful, controlled experiments, random anecdotes, or arguments based on the physical properties of plastic and ice.
