It is interesting how the new golf scores 6.8 in the pole test, whereas the previous mk6 scored 7.7. With no change to the testing method, surely new models should be made safer in every possible way.
I guess the judges deemed it’s pole dancing skills weren’t up to level that previous model displayed
There was talk of changing the NCAP scoring to make five stars harder, not sure if its happened, or this reflects a change.
Can’t help thinking a sixth star would be more logical, given most (but Dacia) seem capable of five, surely this limits development incentive.
Given that safety, or more correctly, NCAP, sells, I wonder how much effort is made to engineer cars to match NCAP, not real world?
Real world data can be skewed, though. Camrys never exceed 40 km/h, so have less severe accidents, but more of them, whereas C’dores are always driven sideways by Bogans at twice the limit, crissed as a picket.
golf a very safe pick again!
The Fiesta and A-Class too.
Hard to hit or be hit by anything when most of it’s life is spent on the back of a flatbed
FNAR FNAR FNAR! SNORT SNORT GUFFAW!
I commend any improvement in any brands safety .
My lady nearly lost her life in a bad smash 18 months ago , damn strong cell and airbags on the 206 GTI saved her .
More safety the better for all of us .
Dacia Lodgy ?? Based on its NCAP results it should be renamed Lacia Dodgy…
Dom, get a life you pathetic little troll!
Good news, the Dacia Sandero……
Mind you, in Brasil, a 1 star safety is better than most
