Seven earn the higest rating in safety tests

22 May 2019

Story from News Press.

Euro NCAP has published the safety ratings of seven new vehicles, among which three have made their first appearance this year: Audi’s first fully electric model, the e-tron, Volkswagen T-Roc’s smaller brother the T-Cross and the hybrid Lexus UX.

Euro NCAP also releases the results of the new Mazda 3, the Renault Clio V, and the latest Toyota Corolla and RAV4. All seven cars achieved the maximum five-star rating against the latest test requirements.

As more and more new energy vehicles are entering on the market, four vehicles of the batch were tested as other than petrol or diesel variants. Audi’s new 4x4 was assessed as full electric and can be compared to Tesla’s Model 3, due later this year, and Jaguar’s I-Pace and Nissan Leaf tested under the same rating regime in 2018. The Corolla, the RAV4 and the UX are hybrid vehicles.
