I'm happy to know that the safety index of SUV shows that it is a safer vehicle. Stability at top speed and the possibility of rolling over should the SUV swerve or take a turn strongly were the factors that discouraged me from buying. However, the lure of appearance, driving and space comfort, and physical advantage (we live in a floody area) made me decide to have one. Nevertheless, whether you drive a sedan or an SUV, much of the safety lies on the alert and responsible hands of the defensive driver.
