Toyota's Urban Cruiser scored a relatively low three stars in Euro NCAP's crash tests, however the top five-star rating was given to nine other new cars.

The latest cars to get five stars are

BMW X1
Chevrolet Cruze
Citroen DS 3
Infiniti FX
Mazda 3
Mercedes-Benz E-Class
Vauxhall Astra
Peugeot 5008
Volkswagen Scirocco

The Chevrolet Spark scored four stars because unlike the others, it doesn't have electronic stability control (ESC) fitted as standard.

Euro NCAP blamed the Urban Cruiser's low rating on a poor adult occupant protection score. However, Toyota says its car is safe, and is currently investigating the Euro NCAP result in detail, in order to understand why there is a difference between Toyota's assessment and Euro NCAP's rating.
