    Didn't think the Kicks would suffer in the "moose test". That was surprising with how high it went on 2 wheels.

    So, skinny tires, higher center of gravity and what am I missing? Would stability control have helped it prevent almost tipping over? Wasn't that more for sliding when braking during a turn but wouldn't really stop you from lifting? Not sure. Don't have a car with Stability Control

    i think to some extent it would prevent a rollover as toyota managed to make the rav4 pass the moose test with an ESP update although there is still a limit to how much it could prevent a rollover as toyota also had to increase tire pressure for the hilux to make it pass the moose test.

    I think US Kicks have ESC. My kid's Kicks takes a turn much better than my old 06 Sonata which had ESC.

    Also, as someone who actually was involved in a deer collision with my 06 Sonata, I was taught never to attempt that moose maneuver. Without guiding pylons, any car can potentially flip over when attempting to avoid an obstacle. There is no way to predict how people will actually react.
