1-star reality

Safe vehicles are a high priority for the New Zealand Government. This is because some of the biggest gains in road safety can be achieved by improving the safety of the vehicles that people currently drive. That’s where the car star safety-rating system comes in. We want people to know that a 5-star safety-rated vehicle offers the safest level of protection for its occupants in a crash while a 1-star safety-rated vehicle offers the least.
