Why Vehicle Safety Ratings Matter in Teen Vehicles

Safety is one of the most important factors to consider when buying your teenager their first car. Vehicle safety ratings can help you make a wise choice.

A 5-star Safety Ratings program of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration evaluates vehicle performance in crash tests. Tests cover frontal, side and rollover impact because those are what the majority of car crashes involve. The more stars awarded, the safer the vehicle. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) evaluates crashworthiness, and rates vehicles good, acceptable, marginal and poor. IIHS also evaluates crash avoidance and mitigation technology. These ratings are basic, advanced or superior. IIHS also rates headlights good, acceptable, marginal and poor.
