SUVs and pickups pose less risk to people in crashes
IIHS news release • September 28, 2011
Effort to make SUVs, pickups less deadly to car occupants in crashes is
ARLINGTON, VA - Today's SUVs and pickups pose far less risk to people in
cars and minivans than previous generations, a new study from the Insurance
Institute for Highway Safety shows. Until recently, SUVs and pickups were
more likely than cars or minivans of the same weight to be involved in
crashes that killed occupants of other cars or minivans. That's no longer
the case for SUVs, and for pickups the higher risk is much less pronounced
than it had been.

Crash test dummies representing an average-sized adult
male and a small-sized adult female are placed in the
driver and front passenger seats, respectively, and are
secured with seat belts. Vehicles are crashed into a fixed
barrier at 35 miles per hour (mph), which is equivalent to a
head-on collision between two similar vehicles each moving
at 35 mph.
Thumbs up for the crash dummies!
