Howsafeisyourcar.com.au provides free, independent safety information on new and used cars based on laboratory crash testing and real world crash data. It is designed and maintained by the Transport Accident Commission and is part of the Safe Vehicles pillar of Towards Zero – Victoria’s approach to road safety with a long term goal of zero deaths and serious injuries on our roads.
Buying safe cars helps us get to our goal of zero. If every vehicle could be upgraded to the safest in its class, serious trauma would be reduced by a third.
Vehicle safety ratings are sourced from the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) and Used Car Safety Ratings (UCSR), which are supported by automobile clubs as well as Australian and New Zealand governments and transport authorities.
