2014 Chevrolet Equinox, GMC Terrain Score Highest in IIHS Testing

GM Twins Ace Institute Tests While Rivals Fall Short

Edward A. SanchezApr 7, 2014
General Motors has unfortunately been in the headlines a great deal in the past several weeks due to the controversy surrounding the ignition switch recall, including congressional testimony by GM CEO Mary Barra. But if you're a midsize SUV shopper, you have a very good reason to keep GM products on your list. The 2014 Chevrolet Equinox and its platform sibling, the GMC Terrain, both received the highest across-the-board crash test scores among a group of nine models tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), which included the popular Honda Pilot, Ford Explorer, Toyota Highlander and Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The GM twins were the only models to receive a "good" score in all seven safety categories rated by IIHS, earning them the Institute's coveted TSP+ designation. The 2014 Toyota Highlander also earned the TSP+ rating by receiving an "acceptable" score in three crash test categories and "good" in the remaining four. The poorest performing models in the test were the Kia Sorento, Mazda CX-9 and Honda Pilot, which all received "poor" overall scores, only earning a good rating in two categories each. The best-selling Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ford Explorer both earned "marginal" overall ratings, with the Explorer getting a poor rating in the structure category.
