Latest Euro NCAP crash test results

24 August 2011

 The latest set of Euro NCAP crash test results brings an additional reward and more 5 stars, but not everyone is ready for tougher requirements in 2012.

Euro NCAP evaluates child safety for each model tested and encourages car manufacturers to provide equally good protection for adults and children.

While many cars released continue to impress in the areas of adult and child occupant protection, pedestrian protection scores are generally still lagging behind, but none of the cars in this release would meet the more stringent 5 star requirement of 60% coming into effect in 2012. A few car makers have already stepped up, showing much higher pedestrian scores such as the recently tested Ford Focus.
