Midsize SUVs With Safety As Well As Style

With price tags above $40,000, luxury midsize SUVs set expectations high. Shoppers want a great driving experience, a refined interior, and the latest tech. They also expect the basics, like crash test scores, to be more than covered.

The eight SUVs in this slideshow have been evaluated by either the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and in many cases both. We had to leave some 2019 luxury midsize SUV models out of this article because their tests were not yet complete from either independent organization at the time of this writing.

All of the SUVs on this list have some advanced safety technology as standard equipment, beyond the rearview camera shoppers expect. However, the equipment that is included varies. Adaptive cruise control, for instance, comes with the base trim of several models but is an option in other models.

Vehicles with advanced driver assistance systems go through additional IIHS tests for front crash prevention, and the IIHS also tests headlight performance. We’ve included these scores for these SUVs.

As more information becomes available, we update our scores, so what you find in this slideshow might not match the most up-to-date scores in our vehicle reviews.
