General Motors finally has something to celebrate about. The 2014 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain aced the latest round of small overlap front crash tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety among nine midsize SUVs, and they both scored a Top Safety Pick+ accolade. However, Honda, Mazda and Kia fared badly with their entries earning Poor ratings in the Overall safety category.
It's not the fault of Honda that Christmas-themed advertising now comes before Thanksgiving. But if it's going to be that way, we can at least thank Honda for giving us the cringe-worthy but we-know-it-all-too-well hovering mother celebrating the technology in the new Honda Pilot.
