The Best SUVs for Safety, Style, and Luxury in 2020

If you’re in the market for an SUV, chances are safety will play a big role in your decision. 

Although SUVs and crossovers are generally assumed to be safe vehicles, not all crossovers are created equally. If safety is a priority for you, it’s important to research each vehicle’s safety scores before signing the paperwork.

Our rankings use scores calculated from crash and safety testing done by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) to determine the best and safest luxury SUVs on this list. The NHTSA and IIHS continuously update their criteria as vehicle safety standards evolve. As a result, many SUVs shown here are all-new or recently redesigned models with the latest equipment, which means they largely keep pace with ever-more-stringent safety expectations.

In general, bigger vehicles are safer, so two vehicles with the same crash test scores might not be equally safe. For this ranking, we eliminated any ties by considering a vehicle’s size, as well as which SUV comes with more standard safety features.

We are always updating our new car rankings as new data comes out, so the scores shown on this list might not exactly match the information on our review pages.
