WATCH: Tesla, Mercedes-Benz ace latest crash tests

2019-07-03 14:27

Euro NCAP releases safety ratings of six new cars today. Four of those have achieved five stars: the much talked about Tesla Model 3, the new Škoda Scala, the Mercedes-Benz B-Class and the latest GLE from the same stable.  

The Tesla Model 3 made a strong debut with a perfect score in the frontal offset deformable barrier crash test, a mainstay of Euro NCAP’s assessment since its inception in 1997. Its performance in the Safety Assist tests particularly impressed, thanks to its superb driver assistance systems like lane support, speed assist and autonomous emergency braking.  The Tesla’s 94% score in 2019 Safety Assist tests is the best yet under Euro NCAP’s most recent protocol.

With B-Class and GLE ratings, Mercedes-Benz is continuing its winning streak with its 10th and 11th solid 5-star result since 2014, underscoring that its safety reputation still is non-negotiable.
