Other than significant crashworthiness structure of the car built to protect the vehicle occupants, the tested models are also equipped with advanced safety assist technologies that could prevent a crash from occurring or reduce the severity of the injury to the victims. We encourage consumers to utilize the NCAP safety rating in their decision-making process when purchasing a vehicle for themselves and their family members.”
