2019 Ford Endura crash tested again as part of ANCAP safety audit

It's the phone call no manufacturer wants to get. A call from ANCAP advising one of their vehicles has been purchased for a secondary verification crash test. This time it's Ford's turn, with ANCAP selecting the new Ford Endura for an audit test to confirm results obtained by Euro NCAP. An audit test occurs when ANCAP decides to reassess a vehicle and ensure it still meets the standards for ratings previously achieved in local crash-testing or via tests carried out by partner Euro NCAP.

ANCAP: Jeep Wrangler gets one-star rating

The Jeep Wrangler’s woeful one-star Euro NCAP crash rating announced late last year has been carried over for Australian versions by affiliated local test body, ANCAP, despite indications that our versions might get some safety-minded improvements. The retro American 4x4 managed a 50% score for adult occupant protection, 49% for ‘vulnerable road user protection’ (pedestrians and cyclists) and 32% for safety assist tech. The only real pass mark was its 80% score for child occupant protection.
