item.
Not Listed = Feature is not mentioned in manufacturer's literature (either promotional or internal literature supplied to Chrome),
but Chrome has not ascertained that the vehicle manufacturer does not offer the feature. It may be available as an unadvertised

Starting with 2011 models, NHTSA has introduced tougher tests and rigorous new 5-Star Safety Ratings that provide more
information about vehicle safety and crash avoidance technologies. Because of the more stringent tests, ratings for 2011 and
newer vehicles should not be compared to ratings for 1990-2010 models. Overall vehicle score and frontal crash ratings should
ONLY be compared to other vehicles of similar size and weight. For more information go to www.safercar.gov.
