Latest Euro NCAP Results Unveiled

By raccars Published

Euro NCAP is the standard bearer for safety tests for our cars, and they’ve now released the latest list of its tested cars with its famous star-scoring system.

Euro NCAP said that, "car makers are rising to Euro NCAP's challenging 2012 5 star requirements, especially in the area of pedestrian protection where the thresholds have been significantly increased this year."

The BMW 3-Series, Mazda CX-5, Peugeot 208 and Hyundai i30 all managed to secure a top-marks 5-star rating, which is impressive considering a couple of those are small hatchback cars.

Thankfully it seems all manufacturers are becoming aware of the need for super-safe cars and you can’t do much better than a 5-star.
