09 November, 2017, 14:41
Seven of the cars were compact or mid-sized SUVs, though for Euro NCAP's purposes some were classed differently. Each one passed with flying colours!
The new Volvo XC60 becomes the best all-round performer of 2017 so far and matches the performance of the XC90, tested in 2015.
The XC60's performance, declared Euro NCAP, makes the small Volvo SUV safer even than its larger sibling, the XC90 - the previous safest vehicle money could buy.
The Volvo's rating was helped with by a number of driver-assistance features that give the auto the performance of a larger model. The new VW Polo joins the Nissan Micra, Ford Fiesta and Seat Ibiza as a supermini that features a whole host of driver assistance features.

The XC60 scored 76 percent for pedestrian protection and 95 percent for safety assistance equipment, with the testers commenting: "The standard-fit autonomous emergency braking system scored maximum points in tests of its functionality at the low-speeds typical of city driving, with collisions avoided at all test speeds". The SEAT Arona, a partner of the Ibiza, shares that car's impressive safety specification and is also rewarded with a five-star rating.

The VW T-Roc, Skoda Karoq and Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross all performed well in all areas of assessment, as did the two small MPVs tested. Both models can also be specified with AEB as an optional extra.
