Latest Euro NCAP results and new identity

Euro NCAP has released the latest safety results for the new Mini Cooper and Peugeot 207CC.

Both models achieved a five star rating for adult occupant protection.

The new Mini Cooper didn’t score as well in the child safety and pedestrian categories, scoring three and two stars respectively.

The 207CC also only scored two stars for pedestrian protection.

Euro NCAP secretary general, Adrian Hobbs, said: “With the achievement of a five star score, BMW has upped the level of safety for adult occupants in the new Mini Cooper since the last model version of the car was tested in 2002.

"The Peugeot 207 CC also reveals that it is not a car just designed to embellish the driving experience, but also that it is a safe car for adults. Unfortunately it was not possible to assess the protection afforded to children in the 207CC. Both cars achieved a poor two-star score in pedestrian protection.”

New Euro NCAP identiy

Euro NCAP will be updating its visual identity on May 8, with new branding and new website. Users of the new Euro NCAP website will be able to view videos of every vehicle that takes a crash test.

Guidelines for Euro NCAP’s new visual identity will be made available on May 8.
