What’s the difference between Auto Grades and the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) Star Rating?
Each rating system provides different information. The NHTSA’s Star Ratings inform consumers about how cars performed in their controlled laboratory tests. Auto Grades uses accident data from real world auto accidents to let you compare virtually any car on the road today. Our grades tell you how well vehicles protected drivers during fatal crashes.
