New Toyota Auris and RAV4 both excel in Euro NCAP tests

The all-new Toyota Auris and the fourth-generation Toyota RAV4 have both managed to achieve five-star safety ratings during the strict Euro NCAP examinations.

This double feat by the Japanese car giant is made even more impressive by the fact that the two vehicles are among the first to reach the incredible standard under the tougher test criteria introduced for 2013.

In concerns to the all-new Toyota Auris, the compact/family hatchback was able to excel in its Euro NCAP test with the assistance of such technology features as ABS with EBD and brake assist, Vehicle Stability Control and an emergency braking signal.

Analysing the mid-grade Auris 1.6 Valvematic for the examination, Euro NCAP awarded the car 92 per cent for adult occupant protection, on top of a 84 per cent rating for child occupant protection.

Meanwhile, the fourth-generation Toyota RAV4 was able to enter the history books by being the first SUV to be given a five-star rating under Euro NCAP’s revised test programme for 2013.

Using a mid-grade 2.2 D-4D diesel all-wheel drive model, the organisation scored the car with an 89 per cent rating where adult occupant protection was concerned, as well as 82 per cent for child occupant protection.
