Auto Grades are based on real crash history. Auto Grade interpretation:
Shaded icons are presented when grades are estimated via data analytics, but the interpretation is the same. Our vulnerability to injury and driving behaviors may differ between men and women and by age, so cars may have a different track record of driver protection depending on the age and gender of the driver. The personalized Auto Grades are as detailed as possible given the available historical crash data. See Auto Grades Explained for more details.
NHTSA 5-Star Safety Ratings Notes:
NHTSA ratings are only meant to be compared between vehicles of similar class and size. NHTSA significantly updated their crash tests and rating algorithms in 2011, so ratings should not be compared between vehicles with Model Year 2010 or earlier, and Model Year 2011 and later. NHTSA ratings may differ among trim levels of the same vehicle. The highest ratings are displayed here. In 2011, NHTSA began identifying recommended safety technologies to help prevent crashes.
For more details about these laboratory-based ratings and available recommended safety technologies, see www.nhtsa.gov/ratings. For car safety notices and recalls see www.nhtsa.gov/recalls.
Working together to create a world where everyone walks away from a crash.
