2 SUVs Perform Poorly in Crash Test
If safety is a big factor for you, then you should know that two popular SUVs just earned a "poor" rating on the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's passenger-side small-overlap test.
The Ford Explorer and Jeep Grand Cherokee got the "poor" ratings on a crash that mimics a 40 mph offset crash into a tree, telephone pole, or corner of another vehicle (this is a common type of crash)
From the slew of SUVs IIHS tested, only the Kia Sorento earned a top Safety Pick+. The 2018 GMC Acadia, 2019 Kia Sorento, and 2018 Volkswagen Atlas all earned a "good" rating on the overlap test, while the 2018 Toyota Highlander, 2018 Nissan Pathfinder, and 2018 Honda Pilot earned "Acceptable" ratings.
