Your vehicle's safety rating

When purchasing a new vehicle, you will take a number of factors into consideration for making your selection: dependability, practicality, fuel economie, comfort, exterior appearance, etc.

But is your future vehicle's safety rating one of these factors?

To this end, all car and truck models put on the market pass numerous different collision tests in order to evaluate the level of protection they offer their occupants during impacts and to ensure their passengers will be safe in the event of an accident. Following these tests, the vehicles are then classed and compared against each other. Consumers can then easily access this information when choosing their next vehicle, but do they bother?

While all vehicles must pass a set of minimum standards in impact tests, they are not all equal in terms of safety. Some simply reach the minimum required, while others strive for better results.

Web sites such as the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (Highway Loss Data Institute) allow you to know the safety rating of your future vehicle, or your current one.

Vehicle safety is priceless. While a vehicle`s appearance or practicality can be important to you, it`s safety rating should be your main priority.
