If you've ever searched for a vehicle in Macomb, you've probably noticed its crash test scores prominently listed somewhere on its description page. These scores can provide incredibly valuable information to you as you seek to purchase the safest vehicle possible. To ensure you make an informed purchase, then, we at Jaguar Lakeside offer this explanation of the meanings behind different crash test ratings.

The ratings offered by the NHTSA are fairly straightforward. Vehicles are graded on a five-star scale, and the vehicles that exceed the stringent crash protection criteria are awarded five stars. Four stars or less indicates room for improvement. The IIHS ratings are a little less straightforward but still quite valuable. The ratings for this organization top out at "good," while lower performers can earn "acceptable," "marginal," or "poor" ratings. Vehicles that score well in both tests tend to be the safest choices.

If you're on the hunt for a safer vehicle, stop by our dealership and let us show you all the vehicles we have to offer.
