Benefits of Driving a 2012 Jeep Liberty Sport Utility

The Liberty's size allows it to maintain a tight turning radius for negotiating tight parking spaces and off-road trails. The Liberty may be a compact SUV, but it is capable of light towing, and available in 4-wheel drive as well as 2-wheel drive. Luxury-oriented Jet editions brings surprisingly upscale trim to the small SUV.

What's new for 2012?

Jeep's compact off-roader didn't change much from 2011Last year's 70th Anniversary edition and Sport Jet models have been dropped. Minor equipment changes include Sport trims offer a Driver Convenience Group that includes Bluetooth, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and UConnect voice command. UConnect is standard on Limited Jet trims.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
