Euro NCAP rates assisted driving systems outside of the usual global rating system.

The tests include a series of critical driving scenarios aimed at showing how effectively the system is able to help the driver avoid a possible accident.

It also assesses how the driver and the system cooperate, and how the system ensures that the driver remains engaged in driving.

Finally, the vehicle's ability to mitigate the consequences of an accident is tested, in the event that it is unavoidable.

The new Nissan Qashqai, already a strong performer in Euro NCAP's overall safety rating, stood out in this series of assisted driving tests.

The ProPILOT system with Navi Link has demonstrated an excellent balance between assisting the driver and preventing overreliance.

But it's in the area of ​​passive safety that the car really excels, with an almost perfect percentage of 93%.

The VW ID.5, which shares its platform with the ID.3 and ID.4, also scored well with a high level of driver assistance, but never fostering overconfidence.

As for the Polestar 2 tested last year, its device has been updated to offer better assistance in turns.

Its results therefore went from “average” to “good”.
