Know the Difference Between the Vehicle Safety Ratings

It's incredibly important to pay attention to vehicle safety ratings when looking for a new car. This is because the different ratings help you understand just how safe a car is, allowing you to take a look at a few different categories. However, just what are those categories and how do they differentiate the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) ones?

Well, for starters, both look at the amount of impact a car can take on. This helps them determine just how prepared any given car is for experiencing a crash. The NHTSA does this over the course of 3 tests, while the IIHS looks at this element over the course of 5.

However, the IIHS also looks at the different types of front-crash-prevention safety equipment that might come with a car, making it a technically more varied process. Both organizations provide accurate ratings, though, which is why you should stop by Auto Gallery Imports today to see how our cars fare and take a test drive!
