Euro NCAP reveals latest crash test results

Date: 27 August 2010

Safety organisation Euro NCAP has released crash test results for the Honda CR-Z, the Suzuki Swift, the Citroen C4 and the Hyundai ix35, with all the cars receiving a maximum five star rating.

Euro NCAP said the results "show that manufacturers are rising to the challenges of Euro NCAP's new rating scheme and are continuing to make safety a priority".

It added that the Honda CR-Z "demonstrates that good all-round safety needs not be compromised by a fuel efficient petrol-electric hybrid powertrain".

Three of the cars demonstrated good protection against whiplash injuries in a rear-end collision, the Citroën C4 being the only one rated as marginal. However, the C4 was the only car to be rewarded for an active, driver-set speed limitation device which assists drivers in maintaining a safe driving speed.

Full results in the categories Small Family, Supermini and Small Offroad 4x4 can be found at the Euro NCAP website.
