SUV Comparison - Safety

An SUV comparison isn't complete without analysis of the safety features onboard, and again, the Hyundai Tucson shines. The Tucson scored higher in both NHTSA and IIHS safety testing, and it includes features like Active Head Restraints and Automatic Emergency Braking that aren't found in the Ford Escape at all.
