Would Your Car Pass the Moose Test?

The possibility of hitting a moose when you’re driving is no joke in certain areas of the country, and it's so common in Sweden that car makers there have been performing the Moose Test on their new vehicles for decades. Other automakers eventually adopted the tough evaluation as well, which today is credited with making better control systems in vehicles around the globe. So, what is the Moose Test? It’s pretty straightforward. The vehicle being evaluated quickly swerves into the left lane and then immediately swerves back into the right lane to avoid oncoming traffic. The test is repeated at faster speeds until the vehicle knocks over cones, spins out, or flips over. The typical testing speed is 40-50 mph. The faster you can go and still maintain control, the safer the vehicle. So, which vehicle has the highest Moose Test rating? The Tesla Model Y is one of the best cars ever put through the Moose Test, managing to go through it without touching the cones when coming in at 51mph. Also passing the test were the Porche GT2, the Hyundai Tucson, and the Ferrari Testarossa. Miserable failures include the Toyota RAV4, the Mercedes A-Class, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, and the Ford Focus.
