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: Frontal Off-set Deformable Barrier test; Mobile Deformable Barrier Test; Side Pole Test (if equipped with head protection system); Whiplash Seat Tests; Pedestrian Subsystem tests; Seat Belt Reminder and Speed Limitation Device functionality tests (where applicable).
First year of the new rating scheme, where scores for Adult Occupant Protection, Child Occupant Protection and Pedestrian Protection are combined with a new area of assessment – Safety Assist – into a single, overall rating. Due to the new rating scheme, star ratings from 2009 onwards are not comparable with ratings from previous years.
