    Vehicle Safety Rating

    The 2014 Chevy Malibu and the Ford Fusion both have a NHTSA Overall Vehicle Safety Score of 5-Stars, but their scores are not identical. While both scored 5-Stars in their Front Crash tests and 4-Stars in their Rollover Safety tests, in its Side Crash test the Chevy Malibu scored 5-Stars –one star better than the Ford Fusion.

    What difference does one star make? The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s 5-star rating system is designed to inform drivers of vehicle safety in three primary categories: a Front Crash Test, a Side Crash Test, and a Rollover probability rating. Because the NHTSA only awards 5-Stars to cars they believe have proven their exceptional safety features, one star can make a huge difference. Though the Ford Fusion still has stellar vehicle safety ratings, the 2014 Chevy Malibu’s safety rating comes with that one extra star to give you peace-of-mind.
