Choosing a Safe SUV

August 7th, 2014 by

HondaWhether you are buying an SUV for its powerful hauling capabilities, its spacious interior, or just because you like the look and feel, you need to know that it’s safe. And while a vehicle like the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee may be popular among Central Michigan drivers, its safety ratings pale in comparison to the 2015 Honda Pilot.

Honda’s Known for Safety

While Jeep vehicles are known for their rugged demeanor, the latest Pilot has a similar feel to it while also maintaining Honda’s reputation for making some of the safest cars, trucks, and SUVs on the road today.

The 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee isn’t a bad vehicle, but when it comes to safety, we think it could do better. The 2015 Honda Pilot outscores the Grand Cherokee five stars to four stars on NHTSA Front Driver Crash Tests as well as four stars to three stars on NHTSA Rollover Safety Ratings.

That’s not all, either. The 2015 Pilot comes with some great standard features that can help make you a safer driver:

  • Rearview camera—It’s almost like having eyes in the back of your head; now you can have a clean view of what’s behind your Pilot when backing up. The rearview camera is unavailable on the basic Grand Cherokee.
  • Bluetooth—It may not sound like a safety feature at first, but being able to make handsfree calls is one less thing to distract you while behind the wheel.
  • Steering wheel-mounted controls—Not only does the Bluetooth let you keep your focus on driving, but these controls let you keep your hands on the wheel while still managing calls, cruise control, and your music.
