Euro NCAP tests gets tougher

Just read the latest Today, Euro NCAP crash test results for five new cars,viz., the Citroen Nemo, the Kia Venga, the Nissan Cube, the Seat Exeo and the Toyota Verso.

Only the Toyota Verso, receives Euro NCAP’s maximum five star rating.

This is due to the fact that Euro NCAP has raised the bar for carmakers to achieve five stars across three areas of safety protection:
Performance thresholds for Adult Occupant Protection - from 70% previously to 75%
Child Occupant Protection - 75% to 80%
Pedestrian Protection - from from 25% to 40%.

The Toyota Verso received good scores in all areas and an huge 69% in pedestrian protection.
