A variety of the latest vehicles on the market have been awarded a five-star safety rating in the latest round of Euro NCAP tests.
The Tonale was said to meet ‘all the requirements’ for a five-star rating, while testers highlighted its inclusion of Attention Assist technology that is able to detect when a driver is losing concentration due to drowsiness. Its five-star rating was also rewarded despite the Tonale’s lack of centre airbags.
Both the Hyundai Tucson and Cupra Born were awarded five-star ratings in the latest examinations, as did the new Mercedes T-Class. The premium MPV was rated highly for adult occupant protection and child occupant protection – with scores of 91 and 93 per cent respectively – while Euro NCAP also awarded it a 90 per cent rating for its safety assistance technology.
