The safety rating of the vehicle you drive can have life-changing consequences not only for you but also for other road users, especially vulnerable ones. Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC) has released its annual Used Car Safety Ratings (UCSR) for 2023 which includes a new “Overall Safety” star rating assigned to each vehicle model. The UCSR rating is underpinned by real-world statistical analysis of more than 9 million vehicles involved in police-reported crashes and 2.5 million injured road users in Australia and New Zealand between 1987-2021.

This webinar will explore the new UCSRs, what contributed to the overall safety score, the 2023 “Safer Pick” vehicles you should buy and those you should avoid. Joining MUARC expert Professor Stuart Newstead is Blake Harris of the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) who will explain how the UCSRs are translated into their website How Safe is Your Car | Vehicle Crash Test Results & Safety Ratings.

Choosing the safest vehicle for your budget could be one of the most important decisions you and your family make. We hope you can join us.
