Protection is important
Make sure you drive the safest car possible. Safe cars offer better protection, especially for older drivers and passengers, who are more susceptible to injury in a crash.
To keep you and your passengers safe, your vehicle needs safety features that help prevent crashes occurring, and provide the best protection in a crash.
The best safety features to help prevent crashes are electronic stability control and autonomous emergency braking. If you’re in a crash, airbags should provide front and side head protection, while seatbelts that tighten automatically when a crash is about to happen can help you avoid serious injury.
If you’re buying a new car, check vehicle safety ratings on the Australasian New Car Assessment Program website. The safest vehicles are awarded five stars.
