Achieving 5 Stars
From 2008 for ANCAP to assign the coveted 5 star rating the car model tested will need to have electronic stability control.
International Crash Testing for consumer information is also conducted in the USA, Japan, Korea and Europe.
Euro NCAP Testing
European NCAP (Euro NCAP) testing procedures are substantially the same as ANCAP testing procedures. However the Euro NCAP results are to be used as a guide only, as the structure and equipment of the European specification model may differ materially from that of the Australian or New Zealand car of the same name. Also, if different safety equipment is fitted, the Australian or New Zealand car of the same name is likely to provide different levels of protection to those noted.
