Range Rover Evoque, Citroen C5 Aircross Get Top Scores In Euro NCAP Safety Ratings

Euro NCAP published its latest safety ratings for two of the newest compact SUV models in the market, namely the Range Rover Evoque and the Citroen C5 Aircross.

Citroen’s compact SUV model comes with plenty of safety kit as standard, such as a forward-looking camera that works with various driver assist functions. In that configuration, the C5 Aircross managed to score 4 stars out of 5 in the Euro NCAP crash test.

The safety rating of the Citroen C5 Aircross increases to five stars when the optional Safety+ pack is fitted. The pack adds a radar sensor to the front camera, enhancing the performance of active safety systems like the AEB City, AEB Inter-Urban, AEB-pedestrian, as well as adding a cyclist detection system.

As for the second-generation Range Rover Evoque, Euro NCAP points out the progress made since the previous model, thanks to the inclusion of an active bonnet, AEB for pedestrian and cyclists and more. The new Range Rover Evoque managed to score five stars overall in the European crash tests.

“It is especially encouraging to see the continued widespread deployment and improvement of advanced technologies such as AEB and lane support,” said Michiel van Ratingen, Secretary General of Euro NCAP. “It is good news that some of the basic driver assist technologies will finally be mandated from 2022, but thankfully most vehicle manufacturers are already way ahead of the curve today.”
