Not surprisingly, safety is a major concern for most car buyers. Here we show which cars were the best in class models in the 2019 Euro NCAP safety tests. You can also check whether the car you have in mind provides the highest level of safety – the Euro NCAP five-star rating.
Car safety has improved dramatically over the years, but it’s still an important consideration when buying a new or used car.
By law, all new car models must pass certain safety tests based on a minimum statutory standard of safety.
Euro NCAP aims to encourage manufacturers to exceed these minimum requirements.
It tests most new cars, looking at protection for adults and children, pedestrians, safety assist and a range of other safety factors.
