Euro NCAP Results
Euro NCAP recently published the safety results for five cars.
The superminis Opel/Vauxhall Adam and Mitsubishi Space Star/Mirage both scored four stars. The small family Toyota Corolla but also the large family Lexus IS 300h and Mazda 6 achieved the coveted five star overall rating in Euro NCAP's latest tests series.
By law, all new car models must pass certain safety tests before they are sold. But whilst legislation provides a minimum statutory standard of safety for new cars, it is the aim of Euro NCAP to encourage manufacturers to exceed these minimum requirements.
