As you might expect for a modern car, the Crossland X achieved a five-star Euro NCAP rating. However, it's worth noting that it didn't score particularly well for rear-seat adult protection due to merely adequate chest protection, and the high likelihood of whiplash injuries caused by the design of the rear head restraints.
Like most rivals, the Crossland X has six airbags and a stability control system that help you stay in control in slippery conditions. However, it misses out on the traction-enhancing Grip Control system that’s available in the closely related Peugeot 2008.
More disappointing is the fact you have to pay extra if you want automatic emergency braking. This important safety feature is part of a pack that also includes a driver drowsiness detector.
