Rollover Note:

Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a ‘fishhook’ maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how ‘top-heavy’ a vehicle is.
