Today, Euro NCAP publishes its second to last release of the year. A dozen cars were put to the test against the 2018-2019 protocols that within a little will come to an end. The Tesla Model X, Porsche Taycan, Audi Q7, Renault Captur, Subaru Forester, Škoda Octavia, Ford Mondeo and Ford Kuga all achieve the coveted five-star rating. The Peugeot 2008 was tested with optional safety pack and with standard safety equipment achieving five and four stars, respectively. The updated VW Sharan and twin sister SEAT Alhambra get a creditable four stars, while the facelifted Jeep Renegade claims only three.
The stand-out performer of this round is undoubtedly Tesla’s Model X, scoring 94 percent for Safety Assist, the same as the Model 3 scored early this year. This makes the two Teslas the best performers in this part of the assessment against Euro NCAP’s most recent protocols. The recently-updated Model X also achieved an impressive 98 percent for adult occupant protection, making it strong contender for Best in Class this year.
