Buying a new small SUV can be pretty stressful. There are a lot of safety features to consider, and you might not realize just how important headlights are. So why make a big deal about headlights? They’re an often overlooked safety feature that can be vital to surviving a serious car accident. While all cars, SUVs, and trucks have headlights, how well they work may be another story. If you want one of the safest small 2022 SUVs, you’ll want to know which have good headlights. These are the eight small SUVs with the worst headlights you can buy in 2022.

The Kia Sportage | Kia

1. The 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander is the safest small SUV with a poor headlight rating

Even though the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander is an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick+, it isn’t without its safety flaws. The headlights on all Mitsubishi Outlander models built before July 2021 have a poor rating. This precludes these specific models from the Top Safety Pick+ award.

2. The 2022 Toyota C-HR has 2 headlight ratings

The 2022 Toyota C-HR is a small SUV with two different headlight ratings. The Toyota C-HR has two headlight ratings. Both the LE and the XLE trim levels have poor headlight ratings.

3. The 2022 Kia Seltos has available headlights with a poor rating

The 2022 Kia Seltos has two headlight ratings, just like the other sport utility vehicles on this list. While some trim levels have good headlight ratings, others have poor headlight ratings. The S, EX, S Turbo, Nightfall, and LX trim levels all have poor headlight ratings.

4. The 2022 Kia Sportage is an overall safe SUV with poor headlights

Even though the 2022 Kia Sportage is a small SUV with a Top Safety Pick award, its headlights are at least part of the reason why it doesn’t win the Top Safety Pick+ award. The Kia Sportage has two headlights available. Some are acceptable and others are poor. The LX, Nightfall Edition, and EX trim all have poor headlight ratings.

5. The headlights on the 2022 Honda H-RV are marginal and poor

The 2022 Honda H-RV doesn’t have any good headlights available. In fact, it doesn’t even have any acceptable headlights. No, the only headlights you can get on the 2022 Honda H-RV are rated marginal and poor.

6. The 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross only has poor headlights

If you buy the 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, you’re only going to be able to get poor headlights on it. There are no headlights available on the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross that don’t have a poor rating.

7. The 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is another of the safest small SUVs with poor headlights

The 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV does have more options than the 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, but they aren’t good. If you buy the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, you’re only able to get acceptable or poor headlights.

8. The 2022 Jeep Renegade has 3 headlight ratings

The 2022 Jeep Renegade has three headlight ratings available. Unfortunately, none of them are good. The Renegade can come with acceptable, marginal, or poor headlight ratings. If safety is your priority, you might want to skip the Jeep Renegade.

While there are a lot of safe small SUVs available, these eight with poor headlights may be best avoided – or at least the trim levels with poor ratings. After all, being able to see when driving in the dark is important, and that will probably be much more difficult with poor headlights.
