Cadillac SRX, Chevy Equinox & Terrain 'Top Safety Picks'

September 23, 2009

ARLINGTON, VA --- The 2010 Cadillac SRX and the 2010 Chevrolet Equinox, also sold as the GMC Terrain, are the newest Top Safety Pick award winners from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. 

To qualify for Top Safety Pick, a vehicle must earn the highest rating of "good" in the institute's front, side and rear tests and must be equipped with electronic stability control. 

Criteria to win are tough, the institute said, because the award is intended to drive continued safety improvements, such as top crash test ratings and the rapid addition of electronic stability control. ESC is standard on the SRX, Equinox and Terrain. 

"Recognizing vehicles at the head of the class for safety helps consumers distinguish the best overall choices without having to sort through multiple test results," said Institute President Adrian Lund.
