Performing stringent experiments on the safety credentials of almost all models on the market, Euro NCAP provide a helpful ranking system – after testing the safety of new cars – to help car buyers make informed choices. They offer an overall score out of 5 stars, with a further breakdown of four categories each receiving an individual score up to 100%. The categories are:
- Adult occupant protection
- Child occupant protection
- Pedestrian protection
- Safety assist
Needless to say, the top 10 safest family cars in 2021 all scored a 5-star rating. On top of that, these safe family vehicles go above the competition in the four categories, offering the best results for adult and child protection. Many also have very high safety assist scores too, helping to prevent accidents in the first place. Read on to see which of the safest family cars takes the top spot!
