Peugeot 1007 achieves best ever Euro NCAP score

The Peugeot 1007 has gained the highest score in Euro NCAP testing.

It is only the second super-mini to gain the Euro NCAP five star occupant protection rating and also achieved the highest points score (36) by a super-mini.

However, Euro NCAP did point out: "Child protection for the three-year-old was good but for the younger child it was quite poor. Finally, the protection it gave to pedestrians was rated as only average."

The results of two other cars, the Honda FR-V and the Suzuki Swift, which both achieved the four star occupant protection rating, are also released.

In these latest tests, pedestrian protection has improved overall with both the Honda FR-V and the Suzuki Swift achieving the three star rating.
