Guidelines for Determining Vehicle Safety Ratings

One of the most important questions that customers can ask our friendly sales staff at Audi North Scottsdale on a daily basis is about vehicle safety. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) puts cars through not one but several different tests in order to arrive at its ratings of Good, Acceptable, Marginal or Poor.

Tests conducted by the IIHS measure both the vehicle's performance and the likelihood of injury when it comes to encountering side impact, the strength of the roof, small and moderate overlap front tests crashing the vehicle head-on into a fixed barrier, head restraints and seats. Vehicles performing the best overall get the coveted Top Safety Pick designation, with Top Safety Pick going to cars testing well in front crash prevention assessment.

Our knowledgeable sales personnel can answer more of your questions regarding a vehicle's safety rating when you visit our showroom to enjoy a new car test drive.
