ANCAP SAFETY is taking a number of precautions to assist in minimising effects on the community. These measures include remote working arrangements for staff and restricted physical contact with the community, our members and stakeholders. These arrangements are not expected to adversely affect the important service we provide to Australian & New Zealand consumers, and ANCAP safety rating information can continue to be accessed via our website. Safety is our priority. Please stay safe.

ANCAP Quick Fact: How are safety ratings calculated?

To achieve an ANCAP safety rating - of whichever star rating level - a vehicle must:

  • achieve minimum scores in each of the physical crash tests; and
  • meet minimum requirements for the inclusion of key safety features and safety assist technologies (SAT).

Active SATs can help prevent, or minimise the impact of, a crash.

For more information please visit our Crash Testing Explained information page.
