5-Star ANCAP Safety For Jaguar F-Pace

Fiat Punto NCAP fail crash test

After testing the new 2017 Fiat Punto, Euro NCAP published its safety rating for the auto: Zero stars out of five, citing minimal occupant safety, no collision warning or avoidance systems, and a host of optional or absent safety features. 72% of the cars tested achieved a five-star Euro NCAP rating, versus 56% in 2016. What Matthew Avery meant by this is that Euro NCAP will never give a five star rating to any other auto that doesn't feature AEB systems from the beginning of 2018. Frontal offset tests resulted in acceptable ratings for driver chest and driver and front passenger lower legs, with good protection for all other areas.

Based on physical crash tests conducted by Euro NCAP, the F-Pace collected a 93 percent adult occupant protection rating, an 85 percent child occupant protection rating, and an 80 percent pedestrian protection rating.

The F-PACE features an aluminium intensive architecture with six airbags to create a super-strong occupant safety cell allied with a suite of advanced driver assistance systems.

Michiel van Ratingen, secretary general of Euro NCAP, said: "This is perhaps the strongest example of a manufacturer continuing to sell a product that is well past its best-before date, at the expense of the unsuspecting auto buyer".

The Punto was not alone in the re-rating blitz, though, with the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, Ford C-Max and Grand C-Max, Toyota Aygo, Opel Karl, and DS3 all dropped to three stars under the latest criteria.

The brand new Kia Stonic is a five-star crash-test auto.

The tests proved happier for the brand-new Hyundai Kona small SUV, the Kia Stinger GT, the Jaguar F-Pace SUV and the fourth-generation of the BMW 6 Series coupe.

Euro NCAP's rating system requires cars to score a minimum number of points in all four areas of assessment to qualify for even one star.

"Those who do not keep their cars up to the latest standards get left behind, as these results clearly show". "We would urge consumers to check our website for the latest ratings and to choose cars with the most up-to-date five-star ratings, many examples of which we have seen in 2017". This result also confirms the current PACE family's safety status following the recent award of five stars to the all-new E-PACE compact SUV.
