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.

The all new Chevy Sonic, in Inferno Orange metallic, is such a great
quality compact vehicle. We were impressed with its features and price tag
upon our first review. The simplicity of this vehicle is hardly seen with
its progressive instrument display, to include the RPM gauge and
Speedometer/Driver Information Center. Its hard to believe that Chevy
actually put a 6-speed transmission in this inexpensive sedan. You have to
test drive it to feel its power and comfort. This is a new Chevy! Chevy

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!
