2019 Suzuki Jimny scores 3 stars in Euro NCAP testing

Suzuki's upcoming Jimny has scored just three stars in Euro NCAP testing, on the back of relatively low scores for adult occupant and vulnerable road-user protection. The adult occupant protection rating was hindered by a steering wheel airbag that didn't quite inflate correctly, allowing the driver's head to contact the steering wheel rim. The front offset test also uncovered a risk of deformity around the front door pillars.

ANCAP encouraging buyers to get into new cars

The Australian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) has launched a campaign encouraging car buyers to stump for the newest possible car, asking 'who would survive' a head-on collision between a 1998 and 2015 Toyota Corolla to illustrate how far passive safety has improved over the past two decades. “This is the first campaign of its kind, where the vehicle is profiled as being the life-saving factor in a crash,” said ANCAP chief executive, James Goodwin.
