Latest Used Car Safety Ratings released

The 2019/20 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.

The ratings are based on real-world data on crashes in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia, New Zealand and South Australia during 1987-2017.

The Used Car Safety Ratings are produced by MUARC as part of the Vehicle Safety Research Group (VSRG) Research Program. It is based upon information by VicRoads, the Transport Accident Commission, the New South Wales Roads and Maritime Services, NRMA Ltd, Queensland Transport and Main Roads, the Western Australian Department of Main Roads, South Australian Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure and the New Zealand Ministry of Transport.

The VSRG is a collective of Australian and New Zealand based road safety agencies including the Commonwealth Government, state road authorities, automobile clubs and state based third party insurance agencies.
