The Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) was joined by the Federal Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Darren Chester, to announce the launch of a new app developed to help Australians make a more informed decision when buying cars.
The new app, known as ‘ANCAP Safety’ is the first of its kind and provides access to ANCAP safety rating information, which can be used when considering a new vehicle to purchase. Additionally, safety-related content, features and news will also be available on the app.
“Getting Australians to drive the safest car they can afford will help to reduce road trauma and by checking this app, vehicle buyers will be better informed before they make their choice," Mr Chester said.
“Safer vehicles are a vital element of the Safe Systems approach to road safety and the Australian Government is proud to share this important new tool to enhance the safety of all Australian road users.”
ANCAP Chief Executive Officer, Mr James Goodwin weighed in saying “the app is a useful tool for those looking to buy a new car as it provides a wealth of safety information at their fingertips.”
“We would encourage all consumers to opt for the safest car that suits their needs and this app, which has easily comparable vehicle safety information, helps them do that.”
