Cars Safety Rating

NHTSA's New Car Assessment Program rates vehicles to determine crashworthiness and rollover safety. The safety ratings are gathered during controlled crash and rollover tests conducted at NHTSA research facilities. Vehicles with a rating of five stars indicate the highest safety rating, whereas a one star indicates the lowest rating. NCAP provides consumers with important information in making a new car purchase, and for comparable vehicle models, it provides a direct comparison of the crashworthiness of vehicles. The NHTSA's 5-Star Safety Ratings help consumers make smart decisions about safety when purchasing a vehicle.
