In the market for a crossover or SUV to shuttle your family around town?

You’ll probably want to make sure your investment is safe and AutoGuide.com has you covered with our top 10 list of the safest crossovers and SUVs available in today’s marketplace.

To determine the safest crossovers and SUVs available in today’s marketplace, we headed over to see which vehicles have been awarded a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. With the addition of the new small overlap front crash test, the IIHS truly puts the newest cars to the test in order to determine which are the safest. Given the requirement of being a Top Safety Pick+, there were exactly 10 crossovers and SUVs on the list and are listed in alphabetical order.

It’s worth noting that the majority of the vehicles unless specified were rated Top Safety Pick+ with optional front crash prevention technologies and are all 2014 model years.

    If the list is alphabetical, they shouldn’t be numbered. Seems like a countdown to the safest vehicle, when in reality, the worst performer is the Toyota Highlander listed at #2. If you checked NHTSA as well as IIHS, the Highlander, Equinox, Rogue, Terrain, Forester and Outlander all fall behind many other SUVs. There are only four that ace both NHTSA and IIHS. The MDX, M-Class, CX-5 and XC60.
