These models have forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and blind spot warning
The good news for consumers is that in 2022, more SUVs come with key active safety systems. But it can be challenging to decipher the marketing and sales materials of every automaker to figure out what the system names mean and which ones are standard equipment.
