Euro NCAP made it easier for drivers all over the world to choose a child seat

Euro NCAP Independent Organization is famous by its tests that absolutely every vehicle of our time had to take to become available on the international markets. The recent Euro NCAP tests gave a five-star rating for four new models that will become available this year. These are the two Toyota vehicles: the RAV4 crossover and the family hatchback Aurus, liftback Skoda Octavia and electric vehicle Renault ZOE. 

Some of the new Euro NCAP innovations include the changes in child’s seats regulations. These innovations have all the information you need based on different seat types and models when you chose a child’s seat for your car. So before you go to the store you better learn the new rules. Not to worry though, the new regulations are way easier and simpler than before, so if there’s a child’s seat that you wanted to buy for your car for a long time, you might be able to finally do it. 

The new Skoda Octavia was particularly highlighted by the Belgian testers. The new car has some really amazing safety features such as: the system that withholds the vehicle in line on the road, emergency seat belt pretensioners and a system that prevents the multiple collisions in case of an accident. 

The Czech liftback received the best ratings in adult passenger’s safety. Among all of the four vehicles that participated in this test it has the 93% rating, the minor passengers’ safety ranged at 86% and the pedestrian’s safety was rated with 82%.  

Renault ZOE showed best results in subsidiary equipment with security systems gaining the 82% rating. ZOE is also the safest electric car of all of the today’s existent vehicles that also participated in Euro NCAP crush tests. Nissan LEAF managed to get all-five star rating but its percentage is slightly lower. Renault Fluence ZE and Mitsubishi i-MiEV both received a four-star rating. As long as Euro NCAP continues to perform these tests and auto manufacturing companies continue to install innovative safety systems in their vehicles the number of accidents and victims will lower.
