This is kind of a “settle a bet” question.
My wife says some little modern cars can get turned over by strong winds, specifically here in the UK so aren’t I glad we bought the much more expensive large car?
I said it sounds very urban-legendy.
Buses or lorries due their higher centre of gravity maybe, but not cars. I can believe the wind causes accidents, I’ve felt the car get pushed around on the road plenty of times, but I don’t see it overturning one.
Does anyone know of any factual cases of a car “flipping” due to wind?
If we can’t find any I’ll try to get her to concede.

You will note that this is just a bit more than your standard wind storm. Personally I think that with the exception of a tornado or hurricane, you have little to worry about.
