Euro NCAP’s fitment survey looks at the availability of AEB on variants in a model range. The survey was first conducted in June 2012 when Euro NCAP announced its intention to include an assessment of AEB systems in a car’s star rating from 2014 onwards. With test protocols now in place, the survey has been repeated to see how fitment has changed in the last 14 months or so.
In 2012 and 2013, the vehicle manufacturer indicated whether AEB is standard equipment, an option or is unavailable on each variant in a model range, for each country in the European Union. This information is illustrated by the coloured bars which show the proportion of the range with each type of fitment. The information is also aggregated across all of the models sold by the manufacturer.
If a manufacturer is not included in the table, they do not currently offer an AEB system on any of their models
Most manufacturers still do not have an AEB system on any of their models. Those manufacturers who had a system available in 2012 continue to do so in 2013 and the rates of fitment have, in general, shown a modest increase over last year.
= AEB is standard equipment. Buy with confidence
= AEB is an option. Take care when buying to ensure AEB is included
= AEB is unavailable
City AEB can avoid low-speed impacts in city traffic up to 20km/h.
Inter-Urban systems operate over the speed range 50-80km/h but may also provide useful mitigation at lower speeds, typical of an urban environment.
Pedestrian systems can detect pedestrians and other vulnerable road users like cyclists.
