How to read our New Car Ratings info

Expert Rating

Our unique Expert Rating is calculated 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 up to 21 different sources, with links back to all the original articles so you can read them for yourself.

Safety Rating

We list the full Euro NCAP 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.

Eco Rating

We include the new Green NCAP 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.

Security Rating

We also include the latest security ratings for new cars as tested by Thatcham Research, which assess the theft risk of new cars. This includes theft by relay attack for keyless entry/keyless start systems. The programme only started in 2019, so fewer than 20% of the cars we have analysed to date currently have a security rating.
