Learning About Vehicle Safety Ratings

Jaguar Fox Valley understands that many people in Appleton can get confused over the different vehicle safety ratings that are available for cars and trucks. Choosing a car that receives high ratings from both the IIHS and the NHTSA can give you peace of mind while driving.

The NHTSA is a government organization. When they perform vehicle testing, they do two different collision test. They also use the center of gravity of the vehicle and its width to determine the rollover potential. Ratings are given to vehicles on a five-star system, with five stars being the best.

The IIHS is funded by car insurance companies and is a non-profit organization. It performs five different collision tests on a vehicle. They use a rating scale of Poor, Marginal, Acceptable, and Good. If a vehicle performs exceptionally well, it can be given a Top Safety Pick or a Top Safety Pick+ designation.
