We are continuing to release security ratings for new cars. Based on a series of tests encompassing physical and digital security, the ratings are designed to assess the all-round security of a new car, while closing down security loopholes as they appear.
One such loophole is the keyless entry / start vulnerability and thieves are exploiting it using a technique known as Relay Attack.
It’s a huge concern for car owners. And it’s the reason why Thatcham Research has released it’s second set of security ratings for 2019.
It means you are informed before buying a new car that could be vulnerable to the Relay Attack.
We’ve rated 18 new cars so far in 2019. Only those with a fix to the vulnerability can gain a Superior rating.
