Four EuroNCAP stars for BMW X3
Euro NCAP today releases the results for the Suzuki Splash, Daihatsu Terios, Renault Kangoo, Citroën C5 and the BMW X3.
Of these results, only the Citroën C5 received five stars in adult occupant protection. Unlike the previous C5, the seat belt reminder system does not meet Euro NCAP’s requirements for the front passenger seat. With the ground-breaking technology for pedestrian protection that Citroen introduced with the C6, it was disappointing to see that the C5 only received two stars.
BMW X3 received only four starts in adult occupant protection, four starts in child protection and one star in pedestrian protection.
Very poor results were received by the pick-ups: Isuzu D-MAX/Rodeo with one star and a half, Nissan Navara half star; only Mitsubishi L200 received four stars.
