A recent report of the Insurance Institute of Highway Security (IIHS) has revealed that the SUV’s, once infamous for their tendency to roll over at high speeds, have become the safest vehicles on road.
This transition can be attributed to the latest advances in vehicle safety technologies like the ABS, rollover mitigation technology and the reinforced roofs of these vehicles.
SUV’s have become the safest vehicles
The study conducted by the IIHS revealed that electronic stability control was the main feature enhancing safety in the SUVs.
The institute which had recommended parents in 2007 to avoid buying SUVs for teens, owing to the poor safety record of these vehicles, is no longer making such recommendations.
