How to read our
New Car Ratings info
Our unique Expert Rating is calculating by compiling new car review scores from across all the top UK automotive media titles, rather than just our own opinions. This means you get a balanced view of multiple opinions from different sources, with links back to all the original articles so you can read them for yourself.
We list the full safety ratings for each model, rather than just the headline score. This includes a complete breakdown of scores for adults, children, pedestrians and assist systems, so you can see the information that matters most to you.
We also include the new eco ratings for each car where they are available, including air quality and energy efficiency ratings for each model and engine tested. This programme only started in February 2019, so there are very few models listed so far, but will grow quickly.
