An Introduction to Car Safety Ratings

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) provide safety information to consumers looking to make the best choice for their next vehicle. Learn about how they rate cars and what the ratings mean for you.

The IIHS crash tests see how well cars do at certain speeds when they are in a collision. A vehicle can be classified as poor, marginal, acceptable, good or a Top Safety Pick. On the other hand, the NHTSA has a three-part system for testing cars. They review a front collision, side collision and rollover performance.
