This SUV Second-Row Crash Test May Change Your Mind On Which Family Car To Buy – SlashGear

The moderate overlap tests run by the IIHS tested a frontal collision with 40% of the front of the vehicle impacted. As the IIHS reports, in vehicles made after 2007, the tests showed that rear-seat passengers were 46% more likely to suffer fatal injury than the front seat passengers. This increased risk of injury is a direct result of a increase in front seat safety, rather than the rear seats becoming less safe. 

Of the 13 mid-sized SUVs tested by the IIHS, only the Ford Explorer, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Subaru Ascent, and Tesla Model Y earned a good rating. A good rating is achieved when sensor reports don’t exceed limits that would indicate “excessive risk of injury to the head, neck, chest, abdomen, or thigh.” The restraint system must also prevent the passenger’s head from impacting any of the vehicle’s interior surfaces and coming too close to the back of the front seat. 

Three of the rest of the test fleet — the Chevrolet Traverse, Toyota Highlander, and Volkswagen Atlas — scored moderate scores, while the rest scored poorly. The six vehicles with poor scores were the Honda Pilot, Hyundai Palisade, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Wrangler 4-door, Mazda CX-9, and Nissan Murano. 

It’s concerning that the vehicles that scored poorly are very popular cars for suburban families, and the tests were carried out with a small dummy that is meant to represent a 12-year-old child or a woman with a small frame.
