2014 rating

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.
