The crossover received five stars for protecting passengers

The European organization Euro NCAP conducted a crash test of the new generation Range Rover Evoque. The car received the maximum rating of five stars, earning 36 points for protecting passengers during a frontal impact. This is the highest result among all existing models of Jaguar and Land Rover.

Euro NCAP experts almost didn’t have any complaints about Evoque. The driver’s and rear passengers’ chest protection during the frontal impact on the deformable barrier and across the entire width of the body was rated as “sufficient”, while the car also provides adequate side impact safety. The only note to the crossover is the “low” protection of rear passengers from whiplash injuries when the car is hit from behind.

Earlier, Euro NCAP tested Range Rover Velar, which earned 35.5 points (or 93 percent of the maximum possible result). The final grade is five out of five stars.

The maximum scores among crossovers now belong to Volvo XC60 – 37.2 points (98 percent of the maximum result), Seat Tarraco – 37.1 points (97 percent), Alfa Romeo Stelvio – 37 points (97 percent) and VW Arteon – 36.8 points (96 percent).
