How safe is your car?

Since 1993, ANCAP has published safety ratings for thousands of different vehicle makes, models and variants. These vehicles are awarded an ANCAP safety rating of between 0 to 5 stars indicating the level of safety they provide in the event of a crash and their ability to avoid, or minimise the effects of a crash.

The more stars, the better the vehicle performed in ANCAP tests. The more recent the datestamp, the more stringent the criteria the vehicle has been assessed against. ANCAP recommends the safest vehicle you can afford with 5 stars and the latest datestamp.

To achieve the maximum 5 star ANCAP safety rating, a vehicle must achieve the highest standards in all tests and feature advanced safety assist technologies.
