Five stars all round in latest Euro NCAP crash tests

Crash testing organisation Euro NCAP has released its most recent batch of results – and it's good news for car buyers. All eight models tested received the maximum five-star rating with one, the Volvo XC60, gaining the title of "best all-round performer of 2017".

Seven of the cars were compact or mid-sized SUVs, though for Euro NCAP's purposes some were classed differently. The Volkswagen T-Roc, Skoda Karoq and Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross flew the flag for the 'small off-road' category, the Citroen C3 Aircross and Vauxhall Crossland X all joined the small MPV class while the new VW Polo and the Seat Arona were both classified as superminis. The Volvo XC60 sat as the lone large off-road entry.
