Safety Insurance Institute Road have in US state that four of the 12 mini-SUV testing reliable when the accident occurred.

Fatal accidents like this are usually the most frequent cause of death in users.

As quoted Reuters, Wednesday (25/3/2009) of the four mini-SUVs that received the top rating in the category "Both" of these institutions are, Volkswagen Tiguan, Subaru Forester, Honda Element and Jeep Patriot.

This is the first time a team of safety supervisors who were funded by insurance companies, released the security rating system based on vehicle roof strength.

Meanwhile, Kia Sportage and Hyundai Tucson, get ratings in the category "Weak."

"After the test, Kia Sportage has a most weak roof, the roof while most owned by the Volkswagen Tiguan," said institute spokesman.

In the United States, more than 10,000 people pertahun killed in a car accident that resulted rolled.

Institute, said the problem for the poor who often

Agency Traffic Safety Administration Road since 2005
explicate, increase safety standards to increase the strength of the roof with the driver up to 2.5 times of the weight of the vehicle without changing the shape or increase the size of the original size.

But the implementation of the standardization is still under the administration of the institution's standards.

Major manufacturer to support the proposed standardization gradually, because there is still disagreement.

Safety standards at this time, written in 1973, set the power-weight rationya and 1.5 times heavier SUVs and pick-up truck.

Institutions to provide assessment, Suzuki Grand Vitara, Chevrolet Equinox, Pontiac Torrent, Toyota RAV4, Nissan Rogue, Mitsubishi Outlander in the category "can be received" as a car that has a strong roof.

And provide a separate rating for the Honda CR-V 7267.T and Ford Escape, Mercury Mariner and Mazda Tribute.
