What is UCSR?
UCSR are calculated from data on injury outcomes to people involved in real world crashes in Australia and New Zealand. The ratings reflect your relative risk of being killed or admitted to hospital in the event of a crash, with more stars indicating lower risk. A vehicle needs to be involved in a large number of crashes to be accurately rated, so some less common or relatively new makes and models will not have a UCSR.
UCSR is an initiative of the Monash University Accident Research Centre, one of the world’s most comprehensive injury prevention research centres.
