Centre for Road Safety


Our Used Car Safety Ratings Buyer's Guide helps identify the safest models among second-hand vehicles. Safety ratings are based on vehicle records from more than 7.5 million police-reported road crashes and 1.7 million injured road users in New Zealand and Australia between 1987 and 2015. Vehicles labelled Safer Pick not only provide excellent protection for the driver, but cause less serious injury to other drivers, pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists in a collision, and have a lower risk of being involved in a crash.
