When you want to feel safe in the vehicle you drive in Roswell, GA, checking the safety ratings before purchasing it can be important. Genesis of Roswell can explain the differences between the IIHS and the NHTSA ratings and how they could help you make an informed decision.

The IIHS is a non-profit organization that gets its funding from car insurance companies. They perform five crash tests on each vehicle and give the car a Poor, Marginal, Acceptable, or Good rating. If a car performs exceptionally well, they can be given a Top Safety Pick or a Top Safety Pick+ award.

The NHTSA is a government organization that determines a vehicle's rating by performing front and side collision tests. They also calculate the rollover potential by using the vehicles width and center of gravity. These results are put together and the car is given a rating on a five-star scale.
