Volkswagen Polo and Taigo gain five-star safety scores

The new Lexus NX, which shares its platform with the Toyota RAV4, also scored five stars. Its highest rating was 91% for safety assist, while its lowest was a still-impressive 83% for vulnerable road user protection.

The SUV achieved the score despite Lexus not providing all of the model’s technical information, which Euro NCAP said left “a careless impression that is atypical for a Toyota brand”.

Elsewhere, the BMW 2 Series Coupé scored four stars out of five, with an “adequate” autonomous emergency braking system that protects against cars and pedestrians. It is however limited when cyclists are involved.
