If you know what you are doing, and use correct tools, crimping is best. Both crimping and solder can be done well, or poorly.

Correctly crimped terminals perform better in vibration testing, but OEM style crimpers are terminal specific, and very expensive.

You should be able to get a good strong crimp with the style someone posted. Those are what I use at home.

For at home use, I either crimp with high quality insulated crimp fittings, or use a non insulated crimp fitting, then add a small amount of solder at the very end of the wire where it sticks out of the fitting.
