ANCAP will officially launch a new app tomorrow that will provide users with an up to date, in hand tool that can be easily used to compare vehicles safety information. While the official launch is tomorrow, the app is free and available to download now on iOS and Android. The app has been developed to provide a new mechanism for consumers to access ANCAP safety rating information in the lead-up to a vehicle purchase, as well as provide additional safety-related content and features to see the safer vehicles conversation continue post-purchase. Users will be able to select from a wide range of the most commonly available models, and compare up to three different cars at once. The app has been developed in collaboration with the NZTA, AA New Zealand and a number of Australian road safety and automotive agencies. “The road toll is increasing so we must work harder and do more to see this reversed. The ‘ANCAP Safety’ app will assist consumers make safer vehicle choices in an effort to reduce road trauma,” the agency said in a statement today. ANCAP is Australasia's leading independent vehicle safety advocate and provides consumers with advice and information on the vehicle safety.
