Honda CR-V and Citroen C4 Picasso receive 5 star rating from Euro NCAPBack

Citroen C4 PicassoEuro NCAP has announced its latest crash test results and is pleased to provide an overall 5 star rating to the Honda CR-V and Citroen C4 Picasso. Mitsubishi and Fiat have also been rewarded for their AEB systems.

Euro NCAP organises crash-tests and provides motoring consumers with a realistic and independent assessment of the safety performance of some of the most popular cars sold in Europe. Since its establishment in 1997, Euro NCAP has rapidly become a catalyst for encouraging significant safety improvements to new car designs.

Today, Euro NCAP has announced that the Honda CR-V and the Citroen C4 Picasso have received a 5 star rating overall for their safety protection in a crash. Both vehicles are put through rigorous tests which test the protection of adult occupants, the protection of child occupants and also the protection of pedestrians if the vehicle was involved in a crash.

The Honda CR-V is a popular choice of family hatchback due to its sturdy build, practicality and the fact it ticks all of the right boxes for SUV buyers. It is comfortable and easy to drive and offers plenty of interior space as well as a huge boot.

The Citroen C4 Picasso is also popular thanks to its massive space and the flexibility that it offers to families, in fact, it is one of the most practical family MPVs you can buy due to its user-friendly seating as well as its high interior quality.

Euro NCAP has also revealed two new Euro NCAP advanced rewards for further Autonomous Emergency Braking systems.

Several studies have revealed that driver distraction or inattentiveness is a factor which causes most rear end accidents, and the Mitsubishi Forward Collision Mitigation, available on the Mitsubishi Outlander tested in 2012, is a system aimed at alerting the driver to an imminent threat of rear end collision both at low and higher speed.

The City Brake Control available as an option on the Fiat Panda and Fiat 500L was also rewarded highlighting the fact that Fiat is providing drivers with a technology helping to avoid low-speed crashes, by optimizing the braking autonomously if needed. It is estimated that a system like City Brake Control could prevent nearly 26,000 injuries every year if fitted to the whole vehicle fleet.
