Latest Euro NCAP safety ratings

1 December 2016

Euro NCAP has published its last round of safety ratings for 2016.

The Audi Q2, Hyundai Ioniq, Ford Edge, Suzuki Ignis and the SsangYong Tivoli  all underwent Euro NCAP’s rigorous safety testing and, of the five cars, two were tested under the dual rating system. The dual rating also applies to the Tivoli’s partner model, the SsangYong XLV.

The Ford Edge, Audi Q2, and Hyundai Ioniq all received the maximum 5 stars for safety with standard equipment. The SsangYong Tivoli (and partner model XLV) received a base rating of 3 stars with standard equipment only, and 4 stars when tested with the optional safety pack. The Suzuki Ignis got a 3-star rating when tested with standard safety equipment, but managed a maximum score of 5 stars when tested with a safety pack.

Euro NCAP Secretary General Michiel van Ratingen said, “It is good to see the dual rating scheme being used as it encourages vehicle manufacturers to develop advanced technologies for their vehicles, even if pricing of the product does not allow it to be standard across the range.
