More on Midsize SUVs

Advancing safety technology over the past decade has brought significant improvements to SUV safety. Today’s SUVs not only include models built with rugged body-on-frame construction, which makes them capable of heading off-road, but also crossover models, which are less rugged but offer a more comfortable, carlike performance. 

With a wide range of prices, performance capabilities, and connectivity, it’s easy to find a midsize SUV that suits your needs.

Safety scores should only be compared between vehicles of similar size and weight. Larger, heavier vehicles generally provide more protection than smaller, lighter ones.
