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 paying off
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.

Safety consequences of vehicle size and weight
IIHS news release • April 14, 2009
New crash tests demonstrate the influence of vehicle size and weight on
safety in crashes; results are relevant to fuel economy policies
ARLINGTON, VA — Three front-to-front crash tests, each involving a
microcar or minicar into a midsize model from the same manufacturer, show
how extra vehicle size and weight enhance occupant protection in
collisions. These Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tests are about
the physics of car crashes, which dictate that very small cars generally
can't protect people in crashes as well as bigger, heavier models.

New roof strength tests
IIHS news release • March 24, 2009
Roof strength is focus of new rating system; 4 of 12 small SUVs evaluated
earn top marks
ARLINGTON, VA — The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is launching a
new roof strength rating system to help consumers pick vehicles that will
help protect them in rollover crashes. Twelve small SUVs are the first to
be put to the test. Only 4 earn the top rating of good. The Volkswagen
Tiguan has the strongest rated roof, and the Kia Sportage has the weakest
among the 2008-09 models evaluated.

High-tech system on vehicles is preventing crashes
IIHS news release • July 19, 2011
High-tech system on Volvos is preventing crashes
ARLINGTON, VA — Vehicles are doing a better job of protecting people in
crashes, but a new crop of advanced technology aims to prevent many crashes
from happening altogether. A new study by the Highway Loss Data Institute
(HLDI) finds that one kind of advanced forward collision avoidance system
is working to prevent about a quarter of the common low-speed crashes that
happen in everyday commuter traffic.
