Crucially, all are on sale with standard-fit Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) systems.

The Citroen DS 7 Crossback, Jaguar E-Pace, BMW X3, Porsche Cayenne, Mercedes-Benz X-Class, Subaru XV, Subaru Impreza and the re-assessed Honda Civic were awarded Euro NCAP 5-star ratings.

The Mercedes-Benz X-Class achieved class-leading results; the last Pick-up to achieve a Euro NCAP 5-star rating for its standard fit equipment was the Ford Ranger in 2012.

The 'Safety Assist' score of 77% achieved by the X-Class is the highest ever in the bakkie category, as is its 'Child Occupant' score of 87%.
