DETROIT (May 16, 2013)--Only two of 13 small SUVs received passing grades in front-end crash tests by an insurance industry group.
Popular models such as the Honda CR-V, Ford Escape and Jeep Wrangler received only "marginal" or "poor" ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Subaru's 2014 Forester was the only vehicle to get a "good" rating.
The 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport received an "acceptable" rating.
The IIHS tested crashes that cover only 25 percent of a vehicle's front end.
The group's tests are more stringent than the U.S. government's full- width front crash test.
IIHS is a nonprofit research group funded by auto insurance companies that develops crash tests to cut deaths, injuries and property damage from car and truck crashes.
