Vehicle Safety Performance 2020

From 2020, by comprehensively evaluating these, we will provide information to vehicle users as "Vehicle Safety Performance" in an easy-to-understand manner.

The total score of Preventive safety performance and Collision safety performance determines the number of ★, and the larger the number of ★, the higher the overall safety performance. There are 5 stars from ★★★★★ to ★.

The total score of the preventive safety performance (out of 82 points), collision safety performance (out of 100 points), and accident automatic emergency call device (out of 8 points) is 190 points.

To earn ★★★★★,the required to have the highest evaluation (A rank) of Collision safety performance and Preventive safety performance, and to be equipped with an Automatic accident emergency call system.

Based on the traffic accident occurrence situation in Japan and the damage reduction effect of equipment and functions, the damage reduction effect for each evaluation item is scored.
