New website helps motorists check car safetyCrash test organisation freshens up its image

08 May 2007

 

Euro NCAP, the crash-test organisation co-founded by Which?, has unveiled a new website which will make it easier for motorists to check-up on the safety of new cars.

The organisation says the website will represent an ‘essential source of safety information’, with viewable crash footage, photos and safety results from all Euro NCAP crash tests displayed for a whole range of vehicles.

The website will make it easier to compare the results of the crash tests of vehicles in the various categories and will also offer advice on various subjects concerned with car safety.

Safer choices

Euro NCAP Secretary General, Adrian Hobbs said: ‘I believe that the introduction of Euro NCAP’s new website will revolutionise the way that we display the results of our crash tests.

'I also hope it will really assist consumers in choosing and buying a safer vehicle.’

Euro NCAP first presented results from vehicle crash tests over ten years ago and since then its distinctive black and yellow logo has been used as a symbol of car safety.

New logos

It is now also introducing new logos for all its ratings which will ensure that consumers are quickly able to verify the scores of any vehicle in the three protection ratings: Adult Occupant, Child Occupant and Pedestrian.

Which? Motoring Editor Richard Headland said: 'Ten years on, it's great that Euro NCAP is freshening up its brand image and making crash-test results even easier for car buyers to understand.'
