The highly successful Green Vehicle Guide has undergone a major makeover, with the safety features of vehicles now part of the information that can be accessed with the press of a button.

As well as calculating a vehicle’s fuel efficiency and carbon emissions, the new improved website also details its safety features such as Electronic Stability Control and airbags.

The Green Vehicle Guide has become the nation’s premier site for comparing the environmental performance of the cars, 4WDs and light commercial vehicles sold in Australia, with around 20,000 hits recorded every month.

The upgrade makes it an even more powerful tool for consumers, giving them an easy, more comprehensive way to compare the various makes and models currently on the market.

Australian car buyers can now make a more informed decision when it comes to protecting their families and the environment.

Updated regularly, the Guide provides information on some 1,900 different makes and models as well as their variants.

The attached table lists the environmental performance, annual running costs and safety features of Australia’s top selling models.

The Green Vehicle Guide can be found at www.greenvehicleguide.gov.au.
