Safe SUVs that are fun to drive
Safe SUVs that are fun to drive

Sport utility vehicles are high-performance cars that are popular with families. However, they haven't had the solid safety reputation that other types of cars and trucks have had.

Fortunately, many of today's SUVs are earning high safety ratings from organizations such as the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Here is a list of five of the safest midsize SUVs on the market. All of them are IIHS top safety picks, meaning they've earned the highest score of "good" in four crash test categories.

These vehicles have advanced technology designed to help drivers maintain control in bad driving conditions and protect occupants in the event of a wreck. They also have enhanced designs and color options that help make them fun to drive. We include their starting price, gas mileage and mpg rating.
