Survey: Rear seats of popular SUVs unsafe

Latest Report from the Nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)carCrash tests found that many best-selling midsize utility vehicles (SUV)’s rear seat safety is a concern.

Six out of 13 mid-size SUVs tested by IIHS had poor rear seat protection, including the Honda Pilot, Hyundai Palisade, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Wrangler 4-Door, Mazda CX-9 and Nissan Murano.

Raul Arbelez, vice president of the IIHS Vehicle Research Center, said the dummy was injured during the test with higher-than-usual stress on the head and neck.

Abelez pointed out that while vehicles have not become less unsafe in recent years, testing has been more rigorous for consumers to find out which cars are the safest.

The test simulated a head-on collision at 40 mph. A dummy imitating a 12-year-old child was added to the rear seat. It found that the risk of fatal injury in the back seat was 46% higher than that in the front seat. The front seats have generally adopted advanced safety protection devices. ,

Four of the 13 vehicles received positive reviews for rear seat safety, including the Ford Explorer, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Subaru Ascent andTesla(Tesla) Model Y; The other three, including the Chevrolet (Chevrolet) Traverse, Toyota (Toyota) Highlander and Volkswagen (Volkswagen) Atlas, received modest reviews.

For the protective design of the driver’s seat, all 13 cars tested received good feedback.

The Alliance for Automotive Innovation (Alliance for Automotive Innovation) issued a statement in response to the test report, stating that safety is a primary consideration of the automotive industry. Through the efforts of various parties, vehicle safety has been continuously improved, but passengers must still ensure that they wear seat belts.
