The Importance of IIHS Safety Ratings

The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety is an independent non-profit organization that works to prevent injury or death from vehicular accidents. Their ratings aren’t swayed by brands or advertising, only the protection of you and your loved ones. Research shows that vehicles with top ratings for side tests are 70% less likely to be involved in passenger death in the event of a side crash than vehicles that score poorly.
