Earlier 5-Star Safety Ratings provide front crash, side crash, and rollover resistance ratings.
New 5-Star Safety Ratings feature an Overall Rating Score to make it easy to compare newer vehicles.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Starting with 2011 models, NHTSA introduced tougher tests and rigorous new 5-Star Safety Ratings that provide more information about vehicle safety and crash avoidance technologies. Because of the more stringent tests, ratings for 2011 and newer vehicles should not be compared to ratings for 1990-2010 models. Overall vehicle score and frontal crash ratings should ONLY be compared to other vehicles of similar size and weight.
