Many factors play into determining your automobile insurance rates : driving record, age, driving experience, sex, and vehicle security. But how will you know which automobiles get the highest safety ratings? And just how can you know which safety features to consider when purchasing a brand new vehicle?
Many businesses and companies now perform vehicle safety evaluations.
Probably one of the most honored and dependable security tests are done by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Annual awards are also given out by the IIHS for the top performing vehicles.
Like the IIHS, safety information is also provided by the NHTSA based on results from crash tests. To look at outcomes from the NHTSA, please see their SafeCar.gov site.
Instead, you may also see combined effects from the NHTSA crash tests and the IIHS. Informed for Life, a nonprofit organization that combines the NHSTA and IIHS results with several other variables for example vehicle weight, creates security scores for each vehicle.
There are several safety features in vehicles now that can give you automatic deductions in your insurance premium, most notably:
electronic stability control
Front, side monitors
Injury alert systems
