Hi Tony,

No, they're not. Admittedly, any larger vehicle that puts the point of impact further away from you is going to be in some small way a little safer, but go to the EuroNCAP crash test website and have a look at the ratings. You'll see that SUVs don't do any better than any other body style. Safety depends on a lot of factors.
