Volvo’s completely new XC90 as well as the Audi Q7 are among the latest cars to be awarded a full 5-star safety rating through Euro NCAP
Volvo’s completely new large luxury SUV scored particularly highly for adult protection, with Euro NCAP’s testers noting in which the XC90’s standard autonomous emergency braking system was capable of bringing your vehicle to a halt before a collision occured in all of its tests, hence earning maximum points.
The XC90 also scored 100% for its safety assistance systems, which all feature as standard. The Q7, meanwhile, marginally beat the XC90’s score for child protection.
The completely new Mazda CX-3 as well as Mitsubishi L200 were also tested, as well as both scored four stars. Euro NCAP says both cars were let down because they do not feature a full range of safety systems as standard. The L200 doesn’t offer autonomous emergency braking, while the CX-3 only offers the system as an optional extra.
In a statement, Euro NCAP said: “not bad occupant protection still can be the back bone of a top rating in Euro NCAP, yet the availability as well as performance of avoidance as well as driver support systems, in which will ultimately pave the way for highly automated vehicles, can be becoming increasingly important.”
