The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has just announced the lineup of 2012 model year passenger vehicles which will be tested as part of the 5-star safety ratings program. The 2012 model year vehicles crash test list includes a total of 74 vehicles, out of which 42 are passenger cars, 22 are SUVs, two are vans and eight are pickups.
“Our 5-star ratings program is a critical resource to help consumers make the best possible decisions about the cars they want to buy. By revamping the tests and creating a more rigorous program last year, we raised the bar on safety for all vehicle manufacturers. People should remember: more stars, safer cars”, said the US Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.
