Seven SUVs Get Top Test Scores

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has released new crash test and rollover
ratings. Seven SUVs earned the government’s highest ratings in front-end and side crashes.
The 2006 models of the Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot, Hyundai Tucson, Mercedes Benz ML-class,
Nissan Murano and Subaru B9 Tribeca received five stars in frontal and side-impact crash
tests for both the driver’s and passenger’s side. The 2007 model of the Ford Explorer Sport
Trac, which is already in showrooms and has a similar structure to the Explorer, also
received five stars in the two crash categories. One pickup truck, the four-door 2006
Toyota Tacoma, received top scores in the two crash tests. The 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe, which
has been on sale since January, received five stars on frontal crashes. None of the SUVs or
pickups tested received five stars in rollover testing
