But because of all these enhancements and enormous size they are prone to rollovers and accidents some even quite fatal. Nevertheless, due to their growing popularity and with more legal cases filed against them, automobile manufacturers have been spending pots of money trying to improvise the safety measures and prevent rollovers in SUVs.

The 5-star is the highest rating for being the best and here are some of the top 4 picks of AWD SUVs which have been rated 5-star for the year 2010. There have been other SUVs which didn’t quite make it to the 5-star and earned a 4-star but here are the four that made it to the top and still is in the affordable range.
