7/17/2023 - IIHS Report on Death Rates by Vehicle Make and Model

Driver death rates by make and model

IIHS periodically calculates driver death rates for individual models. Beginning with 2020 models, we also calculate the rate at which drivers of other vehicles are killed in crashes with a given model.

Both these rates provide perspectives on the relative safety of passenger vehicles across size and class. They take into account only deaths of drivers, not passengers, since every vehicle that crashes has a driver, but not every vehicle has passengers.

Rates are given as the number of driver deaths per million registered vehicle years. A registered vehicle year is one vehicle registered for one year.
