Audi A4 and Honda Jazz and HR-V scoop full marks in latest Euro NCAP tests
Under the tests, the Audi A4 received 90% for the adult occupant score, 87% for child occupant, 75% for pedestrian safety and 75% for safety assist.
Euro NCAP also gave the A4 the “Euro NCAP advanced” special award for its standard-fit multicollision brake assist system and for the Audi pre sense basic system, which is available as an option. Multicollision brake assist automatically brakes the Audi in the event of an accident, thus reducing the danger of skidding as well as the risk of further collisions. Audi pre sense basic tightens the seat belt in hazardous situations leading up to a collision, and closes the windows and sunroof.
Meanwhile Honda’s HR-V crossover scored 86% for adult occupant, 79% for child occupant, 72% for pedestrian and 71% for safety assist.
In addition Honda’s Jazz become the second supermini to be awarded the top five-star rating so far this year, with figures of 93% for adult occupant protection, 85% for child occupant, 73% for pedestrian safety and 71% for safety assist.
Finally, Volkswagen's van-based people carrier, the Caddy, achieved a four-star rating. Euro NCAP noted that the Caddy is unusual for a vehicle in this segment, offering AEB City and Interurban as an option.
