Euro NCAP's Star Cars: Episode VII

3 December 2015

Euro NCAP has released the 7th batch of results of the year including 15 cars from a range of categories, and with a mixed bag of results. Of the 15 cars, 11 achieved 5 stars, two got 4 stars, one was awarded 3 stars and another only 2 stars. 

Almost all new cars in this release not only offer low and/or high speed autonomous braking (AEB) systems, either as an option or standard, but also have incorporated more advanced restraint technology on the rear seats to cope with the newest full-width frontal crash test. This is reflected in the high proportion of 5 stars cars.

Michiel van Ratingen, Euro NCAP Secretary General says, 'In less than 2 years, since Euro NCAP started its campaign to encourage car manufacturers to focus on AEB systems, we have noticed an increasing number of manufacturers responding to our call. Some of the systems are already capable of braking for pedestrians which will be the next test in Euro NCAP’s rating scheme in 2016.'
