EuroNCAP has been conducting crash tests of the latest models launched in the market. In this case it has touched the shift to the hybrid Kia Niro, the compact mpv Renault Scenic, the family Subaru Levorg and pick up Toyota Hilux. The results obtained by them, as the last mind we are used to seeing their brands have been very good, because have reached five stars without exception.
however, and although all the results have been very good, scores distributed by the independent agency have not been the same, so that each model has a score different. As we can see, the stars of the Kia Niro and the Toyota Hilux vary depending on if you mount the safety equipment of series, or choose to extend the equipment up by using any specific package.
In the first place, we have to Kia Niro. The new hybrid compact of the signature Korean has achieved a score broken down in four or five star. If the Niro mount the safety equipment of finishing most basic, the scores obtained in the protection of passengers and driver remain very similar, however, the substantial difference is found in the sections of protection to the pedestrian, and driving aids. This is because as basic equipment not equipped with certain driving aids such as active city brake, or other type of aid.
The second model tested has been the new Renault Scenic. The minivan French obtained directly five-star. However, even if he gets them, we should mention that the scores obtained in protection of the pedestrian and driving aids are relatively low. However, he manages to save the furniture because the standard from the finish to the lowest, and therefore do not need a double measure of safety.
The third model to go through the test of EuroNCAP was the family of Subaru, the new Levorg. The Subaru has obtained the best score of the four vehicles tested and reinforces the idea that the japanese manufacturer manufactures vehicles that are reliable and security. To obtain your five-star joins has exceeded in all of the tests to their peers examination so that it becomes the revelation of this batch of tests.
finally, the Toyota Hilux has closed this round of tests. The same has happened with the Niro, Kia, Toyota has decided to make the double test security. The first has been carried out with a unit with the standard equipment basic and the second with all the attendees of safety and driving aids that you can mount the vehicle.
We say that in a situation as another, the results have been very satisfactory, since it has been shown that the pick ups are not dangerous per se. In the first test has been able to obtain three stars achieving a score in the section of assistance to driving very low. However, in the second test has achieved the five stars, substantially improving the results of the first and rising as a vehicle completely safe.
