Latest Euro NCAP safety ratings for 2016

30 November 2016

Brussels, 30th November 2016 – Today Euro NCAP publishes its last round of safety ratings for 2016. The Audi Q2, Hyundai Ioniq, Ford Edge, Suzuki Ignis and the SsangYong Tivoli all underwent Euro NCAP’s rigorous safety testing and, of the five cars, two were tested under the dual rating system. The dual rating also applies to the Tivoli’s partner model, the SsangYong XLV.

The Ford Edge, Audi Q2, and Hyundai Ioniq all received the maximum 5 stars for safety with standard equipment. The SsangYong Tivoli (and partner model XLV) received a base rating of 3 stars with standard equipment only, and 4 stars when tested with the optional safety pack. The Suzuki Ignis got a 3-star rating when tested with standard safety equipment, but managed a maximum score of 5 stars when tested with a safety pack.

Euro NCAP Secretary General Michiel van Ratingen says: “It is good to see the dual rating scheme being used as it encourages vehicle manufacturers to develop advanced technologies for their vehicles, even if pricing of the product does not allow it to be standard across the range.”

Detailed results and crash test pictures of this car are published on our website. All videos are available on our YouTube channel. More safety ratings will be released on March 1st, 2017.
