Euro NCAP's Safest Cars of 2019

Euro NCAP tested 55 different vehicles in 2019 and they found that these cars are the safest. 

Car safety is a topic which is close to our hearts and we are always interested to see how cars fare when they're crashed. 2019 was a busy year for new car introductions and the European New Car Assessment Program (Euro NCAP) crash-tested 55 models from different car companies to see which were the safest. 

The scoring, according to Euro NCAP, is "a calculation is made of the weighted sum of the scores in each of the four areas of assessment: Adult Occupant, Child Occupant, Pedestrian and Safety Assist. This sum is used as the basis for comparison of the vehicles.

"Cars qualify for ‘Best in Class’ based only on their rating with standard safety equipment. Additional ratings based on optional equipment are excluded.”
