The new crossover from Mazda, the CX-30, has achieved an almost perfect score for the protection of adult occupants in the crash test of Euro NCAP. The Mazda scored 99 percent on that component according to the European body responsible for conducting crash tests.
Never before has a car achieved such a result on this test item. The BMW 3 Series achieved 97 percent earlier this year. In addition to the Mazda, the new Mercedes-Benz cap, the Ford Explorer and the Opel Corsa were also subjected to a crash test.
The CAP was again the sixth Mercedes to receive the maximum rating of five stars this year. The model scored 92 percent for the safety of adult occupants and 82 percent for that of children.
Given its size, the Ford scored less on the pedestrian safety section (61 percent), but nevertheless achieved five stars. The Corsa missed out on the same result, because the standard safety equipment is a little behind.
