5 star success in latest Latin NCAP tests

The Volkswagen Jetta scored five stars in the frontal impact test
New crash test results released by Latin NCAP today show locally produced cars are starting to offer consumers good crash protection. Models built in Brazil, Mexico and Argentina by Ford and Volkswagen are the first built in the region to achieve a five-star adult safety rating. With more consumers checking the safety rating of new cars before buying, vehicle manufacturers have been updating their models to perform better in the Latin NCAP’s crash tests.

Latin NCAP President María Fernanda Rodríguez said: "Latin America’s vehicles are entering a new era in safety. The manufacturers of our region are reacting as in other regions when the first five-star cars were introduced. Brands with safe vehicles and those wishing to improve their safety are striving to demonstrate it. In five tests, three cars are five stars and two are four stars. This is a real change, a big change that benefits all of us: the people in cars, the health system, insurance, and government. It’s also great to see the example of Hyundai making an effort to improve child safety by repeating a test. All of Latin NCAP’s partners agree this is the best way to end the year and to begin 2014 with a positive outlook."
Latin NCAP is supported by the Road Safety Fund through a grant from the FIA Foundation to Global NCAP.
