Here's a wake up call for drivers of small SUV's: a new test gives them mostly "bad" marks when it comes to side impact crashes.

This is the first time the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has run the test. They say side impact crashes are killing more people.

The two SUV's scoring the highest were the Subaru Forester and the Ford Escape, the only two with side air bags.

The Jeep Wrangler and the Honda CRV ranked "marginal." Seven others ranked "poor".
