Looking for a vehicle with great safety features? The European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) has released a list of the some of the safest cars by class for 2018.

Three of the vehicles tested in 2018 have achieved the coveted 'Best in Class' award; Mercedes-Benz A-Class (best Small Family Car), Lexus ES (best all-round performer in the Large Family Car category) and Hyundai NEXO (best of the Large Off-Roaders).

According to the Euro NCAP: "To define the Best in Class, a calculation is made of the weighted sum of the scores in each of the four areas of assessment - Adult Occupant, Child Occupant, Pedestrian and Safety Assist. This sum is used as the basis for comparison of the vehicles."

Cars qualify for ‘Best in Class’ based only on their rating with standard safety equipment.
