Hyundai hard cell on safety

Euro NCAP has released the safety rating of seven new cars.

The Hyundai NEXO is the first hydrogen fuel-cell electric vehicle that Euro NCAP has tested, and it is positive to see it achieving a maximum five star rating.

The fourth generation Mercedes-Benz A-Class, the Mazda 6 and Lexus ES all also achieve a maximum five stars. The Peugeot Rifter and its stablemates, the Citroën Berlingo and Opel Combo, achieve 4 stars.

Michiel van Ratingen, secretary general of Euro NCAP said,'The fuel cell NEXO and hybrid ES point the way for future powertrains and Euro NCAP will work to ensure that safety performance as well as energy efficiency remains at the top of the manufacturers' agenda.

'This is a satisfying set of solid test results and we are pleased that cars continue to perform well in the AEB tests, including for pedestrians and cyclists. It is very welcome to see manufacturers rising to Euro NCAP's challenge of effective vulnerable road user protection.'
