Every year, the Used Car Safety Ratings program reviews crash data from more than eight million police-reported road crashes, covering hundreds of vehicle models on Australian roads. From this data they give each car a star rating to help buyers choose safer used cars. Looking to buy a new second-hand car? Find out how safe it is first.

Used car safety ratings

Buy a safer car and be rewarded by RAC Insurance

The safer a car is in a crash, the better the potential outcome. That's why RAC only insures vehicles with a 4 or 5 star ANCAP rating that were manufactured from 2012 and onwards. This includes both new and second-hand cars.

By doing this we hope to encourage more West Australians to choose safer cars and help make our roads safer.
