Understand Different Vehicle Safety Ratings Today!

It's natural for consumers to want to do the most research not just into their prospective car's features, but also how it has fared when tested for safety measures by the experts. However, this can be confusing, as there are often two different groups of ratings to choose from, begging the question: what's the difference?

Well, the two biggest organizations giving out car ratings are the Highway Safety (IIHS) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Right off the bat, it's worth noting that the NHTSA is a government-affiliated organization, while IIHS is created by insurance companies and is nonprofit.

The NHTSA tests often involve testing the strength of the car, with three separate categories. On the other hand, the IIHS has 5 tests, with them additionally testing front-crash-prevention safety equipment. Want to check out vehicle safety ratings for yourself?
