Consumer Reports Tested Best & Worst Rear Blind Zones

In this chart Consumer Reports identifies the length, in feet, of the blind spot for each listed vehicle. The distance noted is how far behind the vehicle a 28-inch traffic cone had to be before the person, sitting in the driver’s seat, could see the cone’s top by looking through the rear window. Distances are provided for vehicles that are currently sold with no major changes from the vehicle CR tested. This chart does not include vehicles with rear view camera systems, either standard or optional.
