SUVs have not passed the strength test

SUVs have not passed the strength test The American Insurance Institute for highway safety (IIHS) conducted crash tests of the six SUVs, to check the reliability of their security systems. The worst results showed Jeep Grand Cherokee and Chevrolet TrailBlazer, despite the fact that both are equipped with side airbags. IIHS tested the machine on frontal and side impact. Test frontal impact at speeds of 65 km/h withstood all vehicles except TrailBlazer.When checking for a side collision at a speed of 50 km/h it was found that the Nissan Pathfinder and Xterra can protect the driver and passengers only if an optional side airbags. Without them, these SUVs barely satisfy the security requirements. According to the statement, the senior Vice Chairman of the Institute, the tests have disproved the idea that SUVs are more reliable than other types of cars. In a crash test were tested Jeep Grand Cherokee, Chevrolet TrailBlazer, Nissan Pathfinder, Nissan Xterra, Toyota 4Runner and Ford Explorer.autoizvestia.ru13.10.2007.
