Performance figures and new technology often steal the headlines in any modern car brochure.
Whether it’s horsepower, torque figures or even the amount of boot space, there are so many numbers to look out for when you’re trying to find the perfect vehicle for your next car lease.
Your vehicle’s safety features protect you and your family in so many different ways, but it is perhaps not always the first element you think about in your car search.
What are Euro NCAP safety ratings?
When a new car is released, they are put through their paces in various tests and trials by the European New Car Assessment Programme.
Vehicles are put through tests that mimic real-life events, potential crashes and life-threatening scenarios that push their safety features to the limit.
Based on their performance, cars are awarded their Euro NCAP score. This can range between zero and five stars – the higher the star rating, the better the score.
These scores can provide invaluable insight to consumers before they choose their next vehicle.
