  • Toyota RAV4 vs CR-V: driver death rate - why so different?

    I found this Insurance Institute for Highway Safety report:

    http://www.iihs.org/externaldata/srdata/docs/sr4605.pdf

    It seems to say that for the model years they looked at (2008 and equivalent), CR-V's seem to be substantially safer than RAV-4's, judging by the driver death rate, in single-vehicle accidents. (And the driver death rate is a much more relevant info than some contrived crash tests)

    Can anyone explain why? Does RAV-4 have issues with ESC?

    Looking across the board, at Accords, CR-V and Pilot, Honda seems to be leading the pack in the overall driver death rate, in their corresponding categories (Civics are pretty unsafe, but they are light).

    What is Honda doing better than the competitors in protecting the driver?
