The Ratings

Thatcham Research has been conducting security assessments for insurers on all new and facelifted models launched into the UK since the early 1990s.

This is the first time that it has released the outcomes of its assessments publicly and created a rating system for consumers.

Thatcham Research technicians conduct a series of tests, ranging from timed ‘brute-force’ attacks on locks and access points, to tests that identify digital vulnerabilities, namely whether the keyless system is susceptible to the Relay Attack or the On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) Port allows blank keys to be coded.
