What is the safest suv on the road?
The safest small 2012 SUVs on the road are the Chevrolet Equinox, GMC Terrain, Honda CR-V, Hyundai Tucson, Jeep Patriot, Kia Sportage, Mini Cooper Countryman, Nissan Juke, Nissan Rogue, and the Volkswagen Tiguan.
The safest large 2012 SUVs on the road include the Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Suburban, Chevrolet Tahoe, Chevrolet Traverse, Ford Expedition, GMC Acadia, and the GMC Yukon.
All of these SUVs were designated as either an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick, a recipient of a 4- or 5-Star overall rating from National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), or both.
Some Buick Enclaves were recalled in April 2012 so dealers could tighten windshield wipers to prevent blades from coming loose.
