New Jersey readers might have heard that the Subaru Crosstrek earned the highest crash safety grade from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. Unfortunately, the fuel-efficient mini SUV also has the distinction of being in more at-fault collisions than any other vehicle in the U.S., according to a new study.
For the study, researchers from auto insurance comparison website Insurify examined 1.6 million insurance quotes in its database. The quotes contained data on the types of cars customers owned and whether the vehicles had ever been involved in a crash. Overall, they found that 13.64% of all automobiles in the database had been in some sort of collision. However, they found that a whopping 25.81% of all Subaru Crosstreks had been in a crash, making it the most crash-prone vehicle currently on the road. Meanwhile, they found that 25.7% of Honda HR-Vs had been involved in an accident, making it second on the list.
