There's a lot of safety technology that goes into all of the 60-plus crossovers available in North America today. To prove this, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash tests every major brand's offerings and rates each one on a four-point scale spanning Poor, Fair, Average and Good. The vehicles--in this case crossovers--that fair the best throughout this testing are awarded the honor of being named an IIHS Top Safety Pick for that particular year. To earn the title of Top Safety Pick, a vehicle must earn "Good" ratings in all four tests; a fifth test was added in August for 2013 to include small offset front crash testing, but it hasn't yet been widely implemented. The following list includes 10 crossovers that have all been named an IIHS Top Safety Pick.The good news is that many of the vehicles in this segment get pretty good ratings, but there's still a difference between "good" and "great." So we narrowed the choices down to two-row crossovers (five passenger models) with a base price of no more than $30,000 including the destination and handling fees. We've ordered them by price, starting with the least expensive. Don't see your favorite? Check out the IIHS website to see how it fared.
