ANCAP: Mazda 3, Evoque, RAV4, Touareg, UX get 5 star ratings

Independent crash testing firm, ANCAP, has released its latest round of safety scores this week, with several new models getting the full five stars. Among these were the Lexus UX, Mazda 3, Range Rover Evoque, Toyota RAV4 and Volkswagen Touareg. While all these vehicles wear an 2019-stamped five-star ANCAP safety rating, it's worth noting that the actual testing was carried out by European sister arm, Euro, using European-spec vehicles that were left-hand drive (except for the Range Rover).
