Used Car Safety Ratings 2020

The annual guide provides the latest star rating information for a range of used vehicles, determined through a statistical analysis of real-world crash data undertaken by the Monash University on behalf of members of the Vehicle Safety Research Group including the Road Safety Commission.

The research evaluates data from more than eight million vehicles involved in police-reported crashes across Australia and New Zealand, with ratings between one-star to five-stars assigned, identifying the makes and models that provide better protection for drivers based on a vehicle’s size, weight, design and safety features.
