Found this statement on the NHTSA web site (https://www.nhtsa.gov/ratings#vehicle): NHTSA introduced tougher tests and rigorous new 5-Star Safety Ratings for model year 2011 and newer vehicles. These ratings provide more information about safety performance and the performance of recommended crash avoidance technologies. Because of the more stringent tests, 2011-newer model ratings are not comparable to pre-2011 vehicles.
