Knowing How Vehicles are Tested

As a safety conscious driver, you have probably heard of NHTSA and IIHS. One thing you can rest assured is that they both mean that the vehicle has been thoroughly tested for safety. However, as the names suggests, there are plenty of differences between the two.

One difference that is worth looking into is how they both test the vehicles. The NHTSA determines the safety of each vehicle by running 3 tests. The first test is the frontal crash test. The second test is the side impact test. The last test is not really a test but a total account of the vehicle's weight and design. Everything is calculated in a mathematical formula to determine how the vehicle is going to do in a rollover accident.

We have vehicles that have been thoroughly tested for safety at Hyundai Inland Empire. We make it our priority to put you in a safe vehicle.
