Mercedes wins: Euro NCAP: These are the safest new cars in their class
After the Stromer Renault Zoe recently failed in the crash test, the electric flagship from Mercedes creates the best rating. Who else convinced – the safest cars of all classes.

Since the star ratings cannot be compared directly between different vehicle categories, the crash test consortium Euro NCAP publishes a list of the safest cars in their class every year.

Electric winner crashed for the first time

For the first time there was also an award for all segments for the most successful electric car in the crash test. She went to the Mercedes-Benz EQS, which was also named the safest vehicle in the upper class by Euro NCAP. He achieved 96 percent (adults) in the crash test with occupant protection and with the security for children who travel to along with 91 percent of the possible points. With pedestrian protection it was 76 percent, 80 percent when equipment with assistance systems.

The safest cars

In the category of large SUVs, the Skoda Enyaq IV (94 %, 89 %, 71 %, 81 %) in front, for the smaller it was the one Nissan Qashqai (91 %, 91 %, 70 %95 %). The safest "small family car" was Skoda Fabia (85 %, 81 %, 70 %, 71 %) chosen, the winner at the "Small MPV" was Toyota Yaris Cross. (Aum)

The successful Renault Zoe recently cut off very differently at e-car crash. In 2020 he got a facelift, received some improvements in the battery, but no additional security, now complained about Euro NCAP. On the contrary: the side airbag in the seat, which used to protect the head and chest, was replaced by a less effective pure thorax airbag, which represents a deterioration in occupant protection.

Renault Zoe fails in the crash test

According to Euro NCAP, the new Zoe offers poor protection in the event of accidents, poor protection for unprotected road users and no sensible technology for avoiding accident, which disqualifies it for all stars. In addition to the missing side airbag, for example, the ZOE does not have airbags to protect the knees and does not have a belt tensioner and belt bounder on the back seat."Renault was once a synonym for security. The Laguna was the first car in 2001 to get five stars. However, the disappointing results for the Zoe and the Dacia Spring show that the security of the group has now become collateral damage when converting the group to electric cars", said Euro NCAP general secretary Michiel van Ratingen.

  1. incomplete comparison
    If the values for electric cars are already shown, not only should the X … If the values for electric cars are already shown, not only should the cars tested this year. Because that gives a distorted picture. After all, leading representatives of the electric cars have not been tested this year. In order to preserve these values as a comparison, you have to access the 2019 table. And in comparison, the winner doesn’t look so outstanding anymore. For example, Tesla Model X has a two percent better occupant protection than the "Test winner". Even the much cheaper model 3 can have the same occupant protection value as the EQS. Well, the EQs is at the front of children and pedestrian protection. In the case of the assistance systems, Tesla, in turn, wins with 94% compared to EQs with 80%.

  2. Pedestrian protection catastrophic
    Exactly, the protection of pedestrians or cyclists is catastrophic at the Tesla. But cannot be good either, because Tesla only relies on optical camera systems. Sensors such as radar or lidar are saved and are explained as technically unnecessary. If the cameras don’t see anything because of snow or darkness, the AI cannot save anything. Here other manufacturers are doing better, autopilot LVL3.

  3. No surprise
    If you didn’t understand it, even when it comes to security, German manufacturers set the benchmark. Earlier, today and tomorrow. Nothing will change that. This has nothing to do with arrogance, but is simply a fact.
