8. GMC Terrain

The GMC Terrain is a compact SUV with a starting price tag of $27,390 and comes standard with the same 2.4-liter as the Chevrolet Equinox. And just like the Equinox, the GMC Terrain can also be had with a more powerful 3.6-liter V6 engine. Fuel economy is also identical at 22 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway and really the decision comes down to which vehicle’s styling you prefer in addition to how much cargo space and interior room you require.

    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.

    Did you even read the article? “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.”
