Latest Euro NCAP crash test scores

The latest round of crash test results have just been released by Euro NCAP, with top scores for the new Range Rover Evoque and Mercedes C-Class coupe

Everyone loves a good crash test – there are no better excuses for writing-off a brand new car, after all – and the latest round of Euro NCAP results have just been announced.

Once again, safety scores carry on going up – of the 17 cars tested, 11 managed the maximum five star rating and the remaining six cars won four stars. Jaguar Land Rover had mixed fortunes – the Range Rover Evoque scored a full five stars, but the Jaguar XF – which was being retested with revised safety equipment, couldn’t better the four stars that a pre-facelift car managed last year. Not that it was all good news for the Land Rover, either – the Evoque’s pedestrian impact score was just 41 percent, with the leading edge of the bonnet scoring no safety points. 

Other highlights included five star ratings for the Mercedes C-Class coupe and the new B-Class hatch – which managed a top score of 97 percent for adult occupant protection. The Chinese Geely Emgrand EC7 also managed an overall score of four stars, the first decent performance for any Chinese-made car in a Euro NCAP test.

You can check out all the results here – and here’s some video of the Range Rover Evoque being crunched in almost-gratuitous slow motion:

One of the sharpest hot hatchbacks money can buy right now, despite weird branding and a very long name (which we’ve simplified for you).
