CRASH TEST results have been announced by the European vehicle safety body Euro NCAP, after testing of the latest new cars to reach the market.

Amongst the vehicles tested were the Mercedes-Benz CLA, the Jeep Cherokee, the Peugeot 2008 and the Suzuki SX4.

Despite varying on cost and size, all four of the vehicles tested scored the maximum five star overall rating.

The Suzuki SX4 performed particularly well, scoring 92% for adult occupant protection and 80% for child occupant protection. Its pedestrian impact rating of 72% is also above average.

The 4x4 Jeep Cherokee also scored 92% for adult occupant protection although it fared less well in terms of pedestrian impact at 67%, mainly due to its taller body.

The Mercedes-Benz CLA and Peugeot 2008 scored 91% and 88% respectively for adult occupant protection, with 75% and 77% respectively for child occupant protection.
