Based on the crash test results on stringent assessments performed in Europe, experts on car safety have listed the five best new cars to reach the market in the last 12 months. Motors introduced by Honda, Mazda, Seat, Toyota, and Volkswagen previous year have won the highest endorsement from automobiles’ safety and security community. These cars are impressively safe and acclaimed for their work by the carmakers that have developed them, particularly during what has been a challenging year for the motor industry.
For 2021, here are the four best-rated models when it comes to safety.
1. Honda Jazz (Starting Price: £18,895)
The Jazz supermini, a long-running favourite with senior drivers in the UK, Thatcham Research said, is a strong performer across all test categories. According to the Euro NCAP’s evaluation, Honda Jazz provides a very high protection warranty to vulnerable road users. And with a score of 80 per cent for the car protection features, this versatile compact hatchback topped the 2020 rankings.
The inclusion of a centre-mounted airbag to restrict the interaction of the front seat passenger in far-side accidents also helped this hybrid achieve a remarkable 87 per cent in the category of adult occupant safety,’ added by one of the researchers.
