Interesting that most “zero-death vehicles” are SUVs, whereas years ago SUVs had some of the worst death rates. Per the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety report, the nine “zero-death vehicles” (2011 model year or similar) are:
Audi A4 4WD
Kia Sorento 2WD
Lexus RX 350 4WD
Mercedes-Benz GL-Class 4WD
Subaru Legacy 4WD
Toyota Highlander hybrid 4WD
Toyota Sequioa 4WD
Volvo XC90 4WD
“One striking thing about the group of zero-death vehicles — aside from the sheer number — is that two-thirds of them are SUVs,” says the IIHS report.
Also interesting is that some vehicle brands have models that rank amongst the best (fewest fatalities), but also have models amongst the worst.
See if your family vehicle is at the top or bottom of the list – see full IIHS report.
