[02-Jun-2010] Euro NCAP launched its website www.euroncap.com for the first time in two new languages: Dutch and French. Euro NCAP intends to release further languages Catalan, German, Italian, Polish, Spanish and the Swedish in the following months. Euro NCAP also releases the results for three new cars: the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, BMW 5-series and the Mazda CX-7. Of these three cars, the BMW 5 series achieved the highest result in pedestrian protection with a respectable 78%. The car has an active bonnet, so that when a pedestrian is struck, the bonnet is lifted from its position as a result, creating more space to absorb the energy that usually results in injury. The BMW 5 series also scored 100% in Safety Assist as the car has electronic stability control fitted as standard, seatbelt reminders in the front and rear, as well as a driver set speed limitation device. The Alfa Romeo Giulietta is equipped with a reactive seat and head restraint offering good protection.
► 2012 BMW 3 Series CRASH TEST
The passenger compartment of the 3 Series remained stable in the frontal
impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of
the driver and passenger. BMW showed that a similar level of protection
would be provided for occupants of different sizes and to those sat in
different positions. In the side barrier test, all body regions were well
protected and the car scored maximum points. In the more severe side pole
test, protection of the chest and abdomen was adequate and that of the head
and pelvis was good. The seat and head restraint provided good protection
against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.
Based on dummy restults in the dynamic tests, the 3 Series scored maximum
points for its protection of the 18 month infant, and lost only a fraction
of a point for protection of the 3 year old. In the frontal impact, forward
movement of the head of the 3 year dummy, sat in a forward facing
restraint, was not excessive. In the side impact, both dummies were
properly contained by the protective shells of their restraints, minimising
the likelihood of contact with parts of the car's interior. A switch is
available as an option to deactivate the passenger airbag, allowing a
rearward facing child restraint to be used in the passenger seat. This was
not assessed as it is not standard equipment. There were clear warnings of
the dangers of using a rearward facing restraint in that seating position
without having deactivated the airbag.
Both the bumper and the front edge of the bonnet provided good protection
to pedestrians and the car scored maximum points in these areas. In almost
all areas where a child's head might strike, the bonnet provided good
protection but was predominantly poor in those areas likely to be struck by
an adult's head.

Mercedes-Benz Actros - Active Brake Assist 2
Der sicherste Lkw der Welt wird nun noch sicherer: Mercedes-Benz führt im
Schwer-Lkw Actros die zweite Generation des Active Brake Assist ein. Dieses
vielfach preisgekrönte Sicherheitssystem kann jetzt noch mehr: Leitete es
bisher vor langsamer vorausfahrenden Hindernissen bei Gefahr eines
Auffahrunfalls automatisch eine Bremsung ein, so wird der neue Active Brake
Assist 2 auch vor stehenden Hindernissen aktiv, etwa einem überraschenden
Stau. Der Active Brake Assist hat bisher in mehr als 14 000 Lkw und über
mehr als einer Milliarde Kilometer auf den Straßen Europas seine
Leistungsfähigkeit überzeugend in der Praxis unter Beweis gestellt.

Overall: 5 Stars
Frontal: 4 Stars
Side: 5 Stars
Rollover: 5 Stars
Crash test dummies representing an average-sized adult
male and a small-sized adult female are placed in the
driver and front passenger seats, respectively, and are
secured with seat belts. Vehicles are crashed into a fixed
barrier at 35 mph (56.3km/h), which is equivalent to a
head-on collision between two similar vehicles each moving
at 35 mph.
