IIHS releases new injury, collision and theft losses by make and model
Arlington, Virginia – The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has released its latest tables that summarize the recent injury, collision and theft losses of 2003-2005 passenger cars, pickup trucks and SUVs. The results are based on the loss experience of these models from their first sales through May 2006. A total of 372 vehicles are listed.
The results show that insurance losses for injuries, vehicle damage and theft vary widely; vehicle size is strongly related to injury and collision losses, but these losses also vary among vehicles similar in body style and size. The tables can be viewed as pdf files or through a drop-down list at www.iihs.org/brochures/ictl/ictl.html.
