In 2014, crash avoidance systems are included in the star rating. An assessment of AEB systems is included: low-speed, whiplash protection systems in Adult Occupant Protection and high-speed systems in Safety Assist. Safety Assist also includes Lane Support Systems.
ESC is no longer tested by Euro NCAP but points are awarded for compliance with EU legislation. There are also important changes to the way in which pedestrian testing is done, including more detailed analysis of the bumper and the front edge of the bonnet.
Greater weighting is given to Safety Assist in the calculation of the overall score and that of Adult Occupant Protection is reduced.
Star ratings from 2014 contain more extensive technical content than those from previous years and should not be directly compared.
Cars are subjected to the following tests: as 2012 with important updates to test and assessment protocols for Child Occupant Protection and Pedestrain Protection. The previous speed limitation device protocol is expanded to include Intelligent Speed Assistance (ISA).
Star ratings from 2013 contain more extensive technical content than those from previous years and should not be directly compared.
Cars are subjected to the following tests: as 2011 with nominal updates to test and assessment protocols.
Thresholds are significantly raised from 2011 levels in the area of Pedestrian Protection. Additionally, cars must have a higher overall score than in 2011 to get to four and five stars.
Star ratings from 2012 are more demanding than those from previous years, due to more stringent Pedestrian Protection requiements, and should not be directly compared.
Cars are subjected to the following tests: as 2010 with nominal updates to test and assessment protocols. ESC functionality tests included.
Thresholds for star ratings maintained the same as 2010. Star ratings from 2011 can be compared directly with those from 2010.
