Motor vehicle safety body Euro NCAP published the safety ratings of seven new vehicles, among which three have made their first appearance this year: Audi’s first fully electric model, the e-tron, Volkswagen T-Roc’s smaller brother the T-Cross and the hybrid Lexus UX.

Watch how these cars fared in the videos below.

The other cars tested include the Toyota Corolla and RAV4, both launched in South Africa earlier in 2019. All the cars mentioned achieved the maximum five-star rating against the latest test requirements.

The Volkswagen T-Cross will go on sale in South Africa in the third quarter of this year. 

The Corolla, the RAV4 and the UX are hybrid vehicles. Only the UX is offered in hybrid form in South Africa. 

Michiel van Ratingen, Secretary General of Euro NCAP says: "It is encouraging to see that all manufacturers did well, regardless of type of powertrain or class of vehicle tested.  New cars on the market continue to offer more advanced technology as standard, systems that were not even considered an option a few years ago."
