Seven new cars have been awarded five-star safety ratings from Euro NCAP, in a very positive end to the year for car manufacturers.

As we reported yesterday, Fiat and Jeep are in the safety doghouse after two of the worst-ever results in Euro NCAP history, but the news was much better for the rest of the field put through the crash-testing wringer.

The Audi Q3, BMW X5, Hyundai Santa Fe, Jaguar I-Pace, Peugeot 508, Volvo V60 and Volvo S60 all scored the maximum five-star rating, with some excellent results for driver , child and vulnerable road users.

Michiel van Ratingen, Euro NCAP’s secretary general, said: “The Audi Q3, Jaguar I-Pace, Peugeot 508 and Volvo V60/S60 have set the standard against which others are judged this time, and other manufacturers could do well to follow their example.

“The I-Pace, especially, demonstrates that future vehicles will be good for the environment but also provide high levels of safety.”

After issuing a scathing criticism of Fiat and Jeep yesterday, Matthew Avery from the UK’s Thatcham Research was full of praise for the latest five-star cars: “These six carmakers take a more consistent approach to safety across their model range, and all have made a conscious decision to meet the standards set by Euro NCAP’s toughest tests.

“The Audi Q3, Jaguar I Pace, Peugeot 508 and Volvo V60 are all amongst the ten safest cars produced in 2018, with the BMW X5 and Hyundai Santa Fe not far behind.”
