If you're reading this, it's likely that you've already come across the different types of vehicle safety ratings that we'll be talking about in this article. As the two most notable ratings out there, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) both have different rating systems that are important to understand.

For example, the IIHS typically tests cars in five different categories, all involving how the car can brace impact and protect itself from potential crashes. On the other hand, the NHTSA's tests usually involve three separate categories in which they test your car mainly for how much it can handle impact.

So, which one should you trust more? Well, it's not that easy. Both organizations are reliable and testing for important information, so we recommend that you pay attention to both ratings when searching for a car. Want to find the car that's right for you?
