Both electric cars secured five stars
This time, Euro NCAP awarded the Mustang EV five stars in its most recent crash tests in Europe, with the Hyundai Ioniq also giving it a 5 received the highest possible rating.
With the Mustang Mach-E, the safety experts were impressed by the vehicle's standard safety equipment, which includes a central airbag, an extendable hood for pedestrian protection and a range of advanced driver assistance systems. In general, the Mach-E's cabin remained stable during the crash tests, notes Euro NCAP, with the numbers of dummies showing very good protection of the body and knees of the driver and front passenger.

Hyundai took part in the latest round of Euro NCAP tests with three models. The fully electric Ioniq 5 showed good all-round safety values and received five stars from the safety organization. He received Ioniq 5 for 88 percent each in the areas of adult occupant protection and assistance systems. The figure is 86 percent for occupant protection for children and 63 percent for pedestrian protection.

The Tucson barely managed to get past the security assistant hurdle to get into the five-star rating, but that was enough to get the same five-star rating as the electric model. The Bayon, on the other hand, received four out of five stars, which is mainly due to the lack of a central airbag.
The Toyota Yaris Cross has also been tested by Euro NCAP, but the organization has partnered with ANCAP as Europe and Australia are the two main markets for the small crossover. The Japanese model received a five-star rating with both gasoline and PHEV powertrains. Last but not least, the Ford Transit and the Transit Custom as well as the Volvo XC40 received recharge and the Volkswagen Tiguan PHEV all five stars from the safety organization.
