NCAP changes safety rating system

Date: 29 August 2008

Euro NCAP is changing its car safety rating to a single five-star system that includes scores for child and pedestrian protection, and adult occupant protection.

Tests for technology such as anti-skid control will also be included, and a whiplash assessment will be part of the examination. The results for the first cars scored under the new system will be released in February 2009.
