The Honda CR-V and Mercedes-Benz G-Class are top performers in the latest Euro NCAP safety ratings, each earning 5 stars.

Top performers

According to Euro NCAP: "The previous-generation Honda CR-V was tested as a diesel in 2013. In a sign of the times, this latest version is tested in petrol-hybrid form, anticipated to be the biggest-selling variant. The car performs well in all areas of safety and secures a top safety rating."

Mercedes-Benz’s rugged G-Class achieved a five-star rating with an impressive performance in each of the four areas of assessment.

Michiel van Ratingen, Secretary General of Euro NCAP, said: "Here we have three new vehicles, competing in the same segment and getting top safety ratings. 

"That’s impressive enough but the fact that all three off-roaders are equipped with pedestrian and cyclist AEB systems really demonstrates the power of consumer testing not only to encourage better performance but also to promote new technologies as standard-fit across Europe."
