Consider All Crash Test Safety Ratings

March 20 2019, Honda Queensway

When you're buying a new or used car, you'll want to consider many factors including price, features, mileage and safety ratings. The last one of these is important in helping keep you and your family safe in the event of a crash or accident.

Two organizations, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), conduct a series of tests to help buyers make an informed decision. NHTSA, a federal government agency, tests front collisions, side collisions and rollover likelihood and awards stars based on results. The IIHS is a non-profit organization funded by insurance companies, and it rates each vehicle as Poor, Marginal, Acceptable or Good. The IIHS considers five areas before awarding its rating.
