Four sports utility vehicles (SUVs) across different brands have managed to scoop five-star safety ratings from ANCAP.
According to the vehicle safety authority, the Land Rover Range Rover, Land Rover Range Rover Sport, Nissan X-Trail, and Toyota Corolla Cross have received high scores based on the 2020-2022 test and rating criteria.
Petrol, diesel, and PHEV variants of the Rover Range Rover and its partner model, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport have received full points in terms of protection of adult and child occupants in the side impact test and the driver in the oblique pole tests.
Meanwhile, the Nissan X-Trail scored an impressive 97 percent in Safety Assist and 90 percent in Child Occupant Protection. These high scores contributed to the 5-star rating applicable to all petrol and hybrid variants of this model.
Meanwhile, the Toyota Corolla Cross has achieved full marks thanks to its Vulnerable Road User Protection score of 87 percent. The model also achieved good scores in both the side impact and oblique pole tests as well as across most autonomous emergency braking, emergency lane keeping, and lane keep assist test scenarios. The rating applies to all petrol and hybrid variants of this vehicle.
“As we approach the end of this 2020-2022 protocol period and look ahead to a broadened test regime from 2023, it is pleasing to see a continued high level of safety performance offered from a range of brands,” said ANCAP Chief Executive Officer, Carla Hoorweg.
