Euro NCAP Announces 2010 Best Performing Cars

BMW 5-Series
Euro NCAP announces the five best performing cars of 2010. Last year, Euro NCAP crash tested twenty nine vehicles, 65 % of which reached the five star rating, compared to 90 % in 2009. This decrease of 25% clearly shows that Euro NCAP's criteria to reach a five stars are now tougher. While Euro NCAP's poorest results of 2010 were achieved by the Citroen Nemo with three stars and by the Landwind CV9 which received only two stars, the top achievers by category are: BMW 5 Series ( Executive category), Alfa Romeo Giulietta (Small Family category), Honda CR-Z (Supermini category), Toyota Verso (Small MPV category) Kia Sportage (Small off-road 4×4 category). To be selected as safest cars of their categories, these vehicles achieved a high overall score and attained the coveted five star rating.
