2018 Used Car Safety Ratings released

The latest Used Car Safety Ratings have been released, helping motorists buy a safe second-hand car by checking how well each vehicle protects the driver from death or serious injury in a crash.

MUARC has calculated the ratings by using records from over 8 million vehicles involved in police-reported road crashes and more than 2 million injured road users in New Zealand and Australia between 1987 and 2016.

There are 296 vehicle models manufactured from 1996 onwards with ratings, covering the most popular vehicles in Australia and New Zealand.
