Headlight Ratings for Some Alabama-Made Cars: Poor.
Ratings come from Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is out with ratings for car headlights, and only one of the cars tested got a “good” rating. That was the Toyota Prius V.
Several cars assembled in Alabama were on the “poor” list: The Montgomery assembled Hyundai Sonata and The Mercedes C and CLA. Most of the tested cars rated the same…”poor”.
It is the first time the organization has rated headlights for safety.
The best available headlights on 11 cars earn an acceptable rating, while nine only reach a marginal rating. Ten of the vehicles can’t be purchased with anything other than poor-rated headlights.
A vehicle’s price tag is no guarantee of decent headlights. Many of the poor-rated headlights belong to luxury vehicles.
