Euro NCAP Toyota Yaris Cross crash test

Euro NCAP Toyota Yaris Cross crash test

This morning Euro NCAP released the safety ratings for five new models. Among the protagonists of this new batch of tests we find the Ford Mustang Mach-E, to the IONIQ 5, to the Hyundai tucson, to the Toyota yaris cross and to Hyundai bayon.

All have achieved a result of 5 stars except for the Hyundai Bayon which complies with 4 stars.

As you may already know, Ford’s new all-electric SUV, the Mustang Mach-E, shares a name with the iconic blue oval brand muscle car but unlike this one that scored poorly at just 3 stars, the new SUV from the brand rises with the highest score.

The new Mustang Mach-E comes equipped with a center airbag, a drop-down hood airbag for the protection of vulnerable road users and a host of advanced driver assistance features, offering high levels of driver support.

Hyundai impresses with three new models in this batch. IONIQ 5 and TUCSON get 5-star ratings and Hyundai Bayon 4-star.

Although THE IONIQ 5 and the TUCSON are somewhat fair in protection with rates below 90% -almost a standard in their respective segments-, the one that has surprised us has been the Bayon and is that the model has only been raised with 4 stars despite the fact that stoppages must be opened in a segment.

The Toyota yaris cross still hot on the heels of the Mirai and Yaris with another five-star rating. The car, available in gasoline and a hybrid system publishes its result in collaboration with sister organization ANCAP.

In addition to its traditional crash and safety tests, Euro NCAP retested two light commercial vans – the Ford Transit and the Ford Transit Custom – after Ford made some changes. This now results in two gold medals in the commercial van rankings.

Euro NCAP re-evaluated the electric Volvo XC40 Recharge and the plug-in hybrid VW Touareg PHEV. Both share their rating with their conventional-powered brethren tested in 2018.
